Master of Medical Science Program in Anesthesiology
The Master of Medical Science Program in Anesthesiology is a graduate medical education program in the the Emory University School of Medicine. The Program accepts qualified individuals who desire to undertake rigorous didactic and clinical education in order to become knowledgeable, skilled anesthetists. The Program offers two admissions tracks, which have separate application processes.
Students in the general admissions track enter in August, and classroom and clinical education span 24 continuous months with graduation in August – six semesters following matriculation. The general admissions track is open to individuals holding a baccalaureate degree who have completed basic premed courses.
Students in the PA admissions track enter in January, and classroom and clinical education span 19 continuous months with graduation in August – five semesters following matriculation. The PA admissions track is open to certified primary care physician assistants (PA-Cs) who have completed masters-level courses in anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology.
Individuals who successfully complete this program are awarded a Master of Medical Science degree by Emory University. In June of the senior year, students in both tracks take the national Certifying Examination for Anesthesiologist Assistants. Following graduation and successful completion of the Certifying Examination, graduates can become integral anesthetist members of an anesthesia care team practice lead by an anesthesiologist.
