This job description is for applicants to non-ACGME anesthesiology subspecialty fellowships to apply for a part-time Instructor-level faculty position in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. The chief responsibility of the Department of Anesthesiology is to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients having surgical operations, painful invasive procedures, and childbirth.

Job Responsibilities:

This position is a one-year appointment and is divided into clinical attending time and fellowship academic time as required by the respective fellowship director and the department.

Since attending anesthesiologists in this department are also faculty members of the School of Medicine, they are also expected to contribute to the teaching needs of the Department and the School. This may include, but is not limited to preparing and delivering lectures, serving as a preceptor, and providing one-on-one instruction to a variety of learners. Attending anesthesiologists as faculty members are also expected to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the specialty by way of clinical and/or laboratory research.
