AAs work exclusively within the anesthesia care team environment as described by the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA). AAs possess a premedical background and a baccalaureate degree, and also complete a comprehensive didactic and clinical program at the graduate level. AAs are trained extensively in the delivery andmaintenance of quality anesthesia care as well as advanced patient monitoring techniques. The goal of AA education is to nurture the transformation of qualified student applicants into competent health care practitioners who aspire to practice in the anesthesia care team. The 27-month AA course of study consists of an intensive academic and didactic program that will prepare the student to function within the anesthesia care team. The students will get an extensive clinical training experience that will consist of a minimum of 2,000 clinical hours that encompass all aspects of anesthesia care for the surgical patient. Upon completion of the course of study, students will have earned a Master of Science in Anesthesia degree from NSU. Through close, personal interaction with highly qualified faculty members and the latest available anesthesia technology, the first year (semesters 1, 2, 3, and 4) encompasses an in-depth course of study in the fundamentals of anesthesia. Clinical experience during the first year will increase as the year progresses. The didactic curriculum, complemented by simulation learning, will provide the student with the necessary skills to meet the clinical objectives of the curriculum. The senior year (semesters 5, 6, and 7) will consist of clinical rotations assigned in two-week and four-week intervals. During the senior year, clinical rotations are full time and involve all specialty areas in anesthesia, including general surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, otolaryngology, orthopedics, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, genito-urinary Master of Science in Anesthesia—Tampa Bay
