We are one of the premier anesthesiology departments in the U.S., with an excellent residency program for training future doctors, located at the UC Irvine Medical Center in the heart of Southern California.
The University of California, Irvine is one of the ten campuses that constitute the University of California, one of the world's outstanding academic institutions.
