In this talk I will offer an introduction to the world of anesthetic practice, as seen through an educational lens. The operating room environment, and anesthetic practice in particular, is as reliant on education as it is on clinical skills to ensure success. What we don’t know about how education interacts with anesthetic practice far outweighs what is known. I will outline various areas of inquiry being explored by myself and the anesthesia education group, and by the conclusion of the talk participants will be left with insight into what directions medical education in anesthesia is taking at UBC. Specific domains will include the role of simulation, procedural skills training, collaborative learning, and patient safety.
