Continuing Medical Education

The Department of Anesthesiology sponsors many opportunities for continuing medical education.

Decreasing our Dependence on Opiates

We are currently finalizing plans for a one-day symposium on opiate use in the ICU environment, bringing together industry, practitioners, and researchers.  Stuart Lowson will chair the symposium.  We've packed it all into one exceptional day, so mark your calendar for November 9, 2013.  Jordan Hall Conference Center.  The conference is free, and lunch is included.  

Biennial Symposium

In odd-numbered years, the department hosts a continuing education seminar, bringing academic medicine to a wider audience.  The 2013 Symposium was held May 10-11, 2013.  Plans have not been finalized for the next symposium.

Grand Rounds

Our weekly Anesthesiology Grand Rounds presentations have been approved for CME credit. If you live in the Charlottesville area, you are welcome to attend and register for credit.  Grand Rounds occur almost every Wednesday at 7 AM in Jordan Hall Conference Center.  We post the topics and speakers to the Health System calendar, and they also appear on the right side of our home page.  For more information, contact Patty Jenkins.


The Medical Simulation Center at the University of Virginia is an approved site for simulation training to fulfill requirements for recertification. Workshops are offered throughout the year.  Visit the MOCA page on their site for course description and schedules.
