Its purpose is to provide an avenue for medical students to gain insight into what a career in Anesthesiology is like. Since dedicated clinical time in Anesthesia during medical school is limited, AIG sessions provide students an opportunity to explore their interest further and make more informed CaRMS decisions.
The sessions typically entail an approximately 1 hour session where Anesthesia residents and faculty make a short presentation about what life is like both during residency and afterwards. Sessions include dedicated time for questions and a light meal is arranged.
Following the informative session, the students then rotate through various clinical skills stations in the Clinical Learning and Simulation Facility, with an emphasis on airway management.
Through these collaborative sessions, it is hoped that students can gain important insight into their career choices as well as learn airway skills that they can take with them to whatever area of medicine they end up choosing.
