PCHCS Student Handbook 2024-2025

Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences (PCHCS)—Department of Anesthesia 2024–2025 139 Advanced Placement and Transfer of Credits Because of its highly integrated and compact curriculum, the AA programs require matriculants to complete the entire curriculum at the specified campus. No advanced placement, transfer of credit, or credit for experiential learning will be granted. Academic Promotions and Progression The progress of each student through the curriculum requires continuous satisfactory academic and professional performance. The M.S. in Anesthesia is a lockstep program. The sequence of the courses has been thoughtfully determined. Progression from one term to the next is, for M.S. in Anesthesia core courses, based on the successful completion of the courses offered in prior terms. To complete the M.S. in Anesthesia program in the normally scheduled 27 months, students must successfully complete the courses in the time and sequence that they are offered. Students who receive a final course grade of F in any M.S. in Anesthesia core course will not be allowed to progress to the next semester until the course is passed by remediation (core didactic courses only) or course repeat (core clinical courses only). Students who fail to pass course remediation or course repeat at the next scheduled offering will receive an F in that course and will be dismissed from the program. Below are the core didactic courses of the M.S. in Anesthesia program. All courses with the ANES/ANET/ANEJ/ANED prefix and the following ANA 5420 Anatomy PHS 5400 Physiology Below are the core clinical courses of the M.S. in Anesthesia program.
