Anesthesiology Interest Group

Vision and Mission Statement


To increase awareness of the spectrum of clinical practice in Anesthesiology and encourage medical students to explore career opportunities within the field of Anesthesiology.


The AIG will provide a wider range of exposure to Anesthesiology than is available through the Duke School of Medicine curricular experience, with opportunities for mentorship, education, and hands-on experience with Anesthesiology faculty and residents.


The Duke University School of Medicine AIG shall:

  • Educate medical students about Anesthesiology through lectures, discussions, research presentations, and informal social events.
  • Provide opportunities for medical students to learn technical skills inherent to the practice of Anesthesiology through hands-on workshops and physician shadowing programs.
  • Facilitate the mentorship of medical students by pairing interested students with faculty members and residents.
