The Jesse Brown VA Hospital is located at the western edge of the University campus, about a seven minute walk from the University of Illinois Hospital. Main OR rotations during all four training years, pain medicine rotations, and internal medicine, cardiology consults, and general surgery rotations during the Clinical Base Year, are conducted in this state-of-the-art facility, which opened in June of 2008. The VA offers excellent and varied clinical training. Each month, we send one junior resident and one senior resident to work with our seasoned anesthesiologist. Resident enjoy robust regional anesthesia and thoracic anesthesia training. Generally, residents are staffed one to one at the VA which lends to individualized clinical learning. Residents also rotate through the multidisciplinary pain clinic at the VA which offers a unique perspective on pain management to our complex veterans.
