Department of Anesthesiology

Melissa Ehlers, MD
Program Director

The Anesthesiology residency continues to be the reason that many attending anesthesiologists choose to practice at Albany Medical Center. The energy and youth that each successive group of six residents brings to this department are a source of constant renewal and vitality. They keep the faculty engaged, challenged, and studying. They are the heirs of the mantle of anesthesiology, and the future of the specialty will be in their hands. We do not take this responsibility lightly. 

The department has a Board Certification rate of over 95% over the past 15 years, and has sent its graduates to many academic and private practices throughout North America. A survey of our graduates' employers/practices, done over the past 3 years, reveals a high satisfaction rate and respect for our graduates' training and clinical expertise.
