Welcome applicants

Thank you for visiting the University of Illinois Anesthesiology website. We hope that you will browse around to learn more about our program and the residency.

The Residency in Anesthesiology at UIC is a four year categorical program and enrolls twelve residents per year.  However, we will offer one CA-1 position for 2019-2020.  All positions are filled via the National Resident Match Program (NRMP).  Matched applicants will do their internship rotations at the University of Illinois Hospital and at the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center before beginning the three years of clinical anesthesia training.

We interview applicants for the residency match between October and December. There are four dates available (October 27, November 10, November 17, December 1).  All applications are reviewed by our residency selection committee to determine suitability for an interview. Applications are accepted ONLY through ERAS. The University will not support H-1B visa applications for foreign medical graduates in residency programs. All interviews are conducted on Saturdays with a morning and afternoon session.  We welcome you to have dinner with our residents the night before your interview.  We hope this will give you an opportunity to meet our residents and learn about our culture at UIC.  We invite many of our residents to participate in order to give you a varied perspective on our program.  In order to accommodate more residents, we will not be able to extend invitations to spouses and significant others.  Dinner will be at Gibson’s Steakhouse (give address, time, parking)

Saturday morning interview is from 7:30-12pm and the afternoon sessions is from 12:15pm-5pm. Please schedule your interview through the ERAS system under scheduler as we offer twenty-five interview blocks for each session.  Interview spots fill up quickly but we will place you on a waitlist for each session.  Please contact us if there are any conflicts but it is best to schedule directly through the ERAS system.  The day will start with a presentation by members of the selection committee. During the rest of the morning, applicants interview with faculty members (each applicant will have three interviews with our faculty and one interview with the Chief Residents), or convene in the conference room to chat with current residents. You will finish the day with a tour of our department and operating room. We will offer breakfast for the morning sessions and lunch for the afternoon sessions.

Please see the information below on our location and parking arrangements for your interview day.  Again, we are very excited to meet you and wish you the best during this interview season.  Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
