Dental Anesthesiology Extern Program

Third and fourth year dental students who are interested in a career in dental anesthesiology are encouraged to apply for a one- to four-week externship at the University of Pittsburgh. Students who rotate in our externship will participate in clinical anesthetics performed throughout the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Health System.

Management of patients in conjunction with our attending anesthesiologists and residents is an important part of the externship experience. Rotating students will have the opportunity to see the full scope of anesthesia and surgery while participating on an active level of involvement. This is the perfect opportunity to experience life as a resident, have all of your questions answered and see what the city of Pittsburgh has to offer. Our schedule is flexible, we want you to visit us to see what we are all about.
