A successful career as an anesthesiologist assistant demands a series of perfect balances. It requires consideration of the patient’s condition, as well as accommodation of the surgeon’s requirements. It also calls for a carefully measured combination of compassion, professional dedication, and commitment — all of which play key roles in positive surgical outcomes.
At the South University School of Health Professions, we recognize the impact this balance can have on the professional development of an anesthesiologist assistant. We also see the critical role each element plays in the delivery of pain management services, surgical success, and ultimately, the delivery of quality patient care. In the program, students learn the facets and acquire the skills to effectively deliver anesthesiology.
This program incorporates a mock operating room and an anesthesia laboratory into the coursework. And through wireless capability available in all classrooms, students have access to program-specific educational facilities and technologies.
