To learn more about anesthesiology, medical students are encouraged to participate in The Ohio State University College of Medicine’s Anesthesiology Interest Group (AIG). The goals of AIG are to increase interest in anesthesiology by creating opportunities for medical students to become involved in anesthesia research and education and by helping members pursue an anesthesia residency.
AIG meets in Meiling Hall, with various lectures and events held throughout the year, including workshops on airway management, ultrasound in critical care medicine, IV access with and without ultrasound guidance, advanced cardiac life support (ACLS), etc.
In addition to gaining hands-on experience through a variety of workshops, students also have the unique opportunity to network with Department of Anesthesiology faculty, who are invited for informal question-and-answer sessions about the specialty and residencies.
Leadership positions are filled in late spring quarter and are available for medical students at all levels who are interested in anesthesiology.
