CSA Vital Times

Despite the pandemic, we were able to continue our
training experiences and in-person protected didactic
days with very little interruption. We are so grateful to
have the ability to keep our residents safe and preserve
the activities that ensure their progression to board
certification. Our residents were class-act team players,
staying flexible, providing excellent patient care, and
participating in COVID-response activities such as creating
education videos, making new emergency airway kits, and
sourcing additional PPE. We've also found some silver
linings by adding frequent Zoom mock orals and " Zoom
Anesthesia Pearl " (ZAP) sessions! To combat the expected
ventilator and PPE shortage, Govind Rajan, MD, and
Kate McCartney, MD, partnered with a multi-disciplinary
group to create the Bridge Ventilator Consortium. Melissa
Chang, MD, led a team to design and produce MIT-certified
masks out of sterile processing wraps that approach N-95
protection.
In July, our graduates headed off to fellowships in
Interventional Pain Medicine at UC Davis, University of
Maryland, and UCI. Our graduates also took fellowships
in Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine at
University of Washington, Virginia Mason, University of
Utah & UCI, Obstetric Anesthesiology at UCI/Long Beach
Memorial, Pediatric Anesthesiology at Children's Hospital
of Philadelphia, and Anesthesiology Critical Care Medicine
at UCI. Two of our graduates got their top choice of faculty
appointments at UC Irvine and Pacific Anesthesia in
Honolulu, Hawaii. We couldn't be prouder.

We look forward to another exciting year
of education and innovation at UCI.
