Fall 2020 Residency Program's Virtual Open Houses

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on large social gatherings, IU School of Medicine Department of Anesthesia will be hosting Virtual Open Houses where interested applicants can interact with our current residents. Participants will receive a brief overview of our program and time to ask the residents direct questions about what to expect during IU residency. 

We will offer the same event twice from 6-7pm EST – once on Thursday, September 10th and again on Monday, September 28th.

Those interested should email our Residency Coordinator, Anita Batza, at with the date that you would like to participate. All communication must be from your institution-issued email address. Please participate in only one event. 

If you are unable to attend, the IU School of Medicine will also be attending the ASA Meet and Greet with Residency Programs event that will occur virtually on Saturday, October 3rd, 2020 from 4:30-6pm EST.

We look forward to meeting you!

Jerome Adams, MD, MPH is the 20th United States Surgeon General, and first anesthesiologist to serve in the role. Prior to his appointment in September 2017, he served three years as the Indiana State Health Commissioner and ran the State Department of Health as a member of Governor Mike Pence’s cabinet.

Dr. Adams rose in rank from Assistant to Associate Professor within the Department of Anesthesia at Indiana University School of Medicine from 2008 to 2017. Dr. Adams practiced as a clinical anesthesiologist by providing level one trauma service, obstetrical anesthesiology care, and acute pain service at Eskenazi Hospital. Additionally, he provided service to the hospital as chair of the Hospital Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee for more than five years.

According to Dr. Adams, “I definitely wouldn’t be where I am today were it not for the experience I gained and the support I had from key colleagues and mentors within the department and hospital. I’m constantly amazed at how often my knowledge of anesthesiology, medicine, and clinical skill set are utilized to address some of our Nation’s top health issues.”
