​Life Beyond Anesthesiology

As residents at UC San Diego, we enjoy an unparalleled degree of autonomy and responsibility during our training. The primary mission of the UC San Diego Department of Anesthesiology is the training and education of residents well prepared to enter into academic medicine, private practice medicine, or continue training in various fellowship programs — this has been evident since day one.

Our Favorite Places in SD

The UC San Diego Department of Anesthesia promotes the well-being of our residents and understands that one must live a well balanced life in order to succeed. Fortunately San Diego has something for everyone and with its temperate climate, one can find outdoor recreational activities year-round.

We have curated a brief list of our favorite locations to visit while you are in San Diego. By no means exhaustive, this list is meant to showcase some of the diverse, sprawling neighborhoods and fun aspects that truly make San Diego great.
