The recently completed Match Day once again demonstrated how hard it is to get into an anesthesiology residency. Of all the PGY1 spots for anesthesiology, 99.9% of them were filled on Match Day. Out of 1,509 open positions, 1,508 were taken. It's an incredible statistic and shows how extremely competitive it is to get accepted into anesthesiology.
To gain an edge in the residency match, one should attend a medical school that is highly ranked in anesthesiology training. Luckily for us, U.S. News & World Reports made a list for 2022 of the best programs in the country. Get into one of these med schools and graduates will have a leg up in receiving one of the coveted anesthesiology positions.
This list is based on a nebulous combination of factors including quality assessment, student selectivity, undergraduate GPA, MCAT scores, etc. If you're talented enough to ace all these different components, you're on the ROAD to one of the best jobs in America.
So here are the top medical schools with the best anesthesiology programs as ranked by U.S. News:
1. Harvard University
2. Johns Hopkins University
3. Duke University
4. University of California, San Francisco
5. Columbia University
6. Stanford University
7. University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
7. University of Pennsylvania
9. University of California, Los Angeles
9. Washington University in St. Louis
11. Mayo Clinic School of Medicine
12. Vanderbilt University
Other schools that made the list but U.S. News demands money to see their rankings include:
Baylor College of Medicine
New York University
University of Washington
While getting into one of these schools is nice, remember that a vast majority of anesthesiologists did not graduate from these elite programs. So if you are not a student in one of these schools, don't fret. Most medical students aren't either but that doesn't mean you can't score a treasured spot in an anesthesiology residency in the future.
