Anesthesiology Student Interest Group (ASIG)

The Anesthesiology Interest Group at David Geffen School of Medicine aims to increase awareness and interest in Anesthesiology as it is a specialty that students have very little exposure to in the preclinical as well as in many students’ clinical years. It provides opportunities for students to learn about the specialty, become involved in research/mentorship/shadowing, and acquire hands-on practical skills with common procedures and techniques. We provide opportunities to attend anesthesia related workshops such as an airways lab to allow students to gain experience in intubating a patient and doing a cricothyroidotomy. We complete this mission through a variety of activities: -Airway management workshop co-hosted with other DGSOM student interest groups. Students are given a short introductory presentation on airway anatomy, followed by a hands-on workshop where students learn and practice intubation, as well as work with Glidescopes, fiber optic scopes, LMAs, and mask ventilation. -Pre-shadowing orientation in the Anesthesiology department at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center. -Multiple interactive, case-based talks given by residents and professors of the Anesthesiology department at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center.
