Division of Obstetric Anesthesia

Our Division Mission

The UC San Diego Division of Obstetric Anesthesia has a 3-fold mission:

  • Patient care
  • Teaching
  • Research

Our patient care goal within the Division is to work as a full member of the Labor & Delivery patient care team in order to optimize the birth experience for mothers and families. We try to understand and serve the patient's and family's needs.

We work in a close, respectful and collegial relationship with nurses, nurse midwives, obstetricians and pediatricians to optimize patient care. We strive to know the patients who are being cared for in Labor & Delivery and to anticipate and respond quickly to any problems that may arise.
