Department of Anesthesiology & Perioperative Care: School of Medicine: University of California, Irvine

Anesthesiology Interest Group (AIG)

The Anesthesia Interest Group was established to introduce interested medical students to the exciting, burgeoning field of anesthesiology. With the boom in medical advancements in the modern age, anesthesiology is at the forefront taking advantage of the latest medical technologies to better patient care preoperatively, intraoperatively, and postoperatively. AIG Website

AIG holds two general meetings annually, coordinates student involvement in the annual department holiday dinner, conducts question and answer sessions with senior medical students and resident/faculty regarding residency applications, and helps run the airway management workshop at the annual medical student Palm Springs retreat. The Anesthesia Interest Group can also help members with applications, connect them with faculty for shadowing, research experiences, and introduce them to private anesthesiologists in the community.

We sincerely look forward to having you in our group and welcome all those we are interested in the field.


AIG hosts informative and interactive workshops throughout the year for medical students. If you are interested in becoming a member or participate at one of our workshops, please contact one of our board members or visit our AIG website.

Some workshops planned for the year are:

  • Airway/Intubation workshop
  • "Real Deal" anesthesia talk
  • General meetings
  • MS3 meeting with anesthesia program director
