Education Matters - Fall 2015

Fall 2015 Education Matters

Fall – roasting chiles, carving pumpkins and recruiting the next generation of anesthesiologists. Our first recruitment event was October 16th & 17th. The Program Director, Tony Yen, has made some changes this year. At the end of October, our friend, colleague and anesthesia hero Mike Carey, MD passed away. We are holding him in our memories with anecdotes of his clinical acumen, goofiness, and general goodness. He is missed.
