Department of Anesthesiology

Welcome to the homepage of the Loma Linda University Department of Anesthesiology. We are glad you have chosen to visit our site! Here you can find information about our department, including our residency and fellowship programs, research department, staff, and many other items of interest. Take a look around and let us know if you would like further information.



On behalf of our entire department, welcome to our website. It is my hope that the time spent on this site will be informative for you.

We are located in the heart of beautiful Southern California, in the area known as the Inland Empire, situated conveniently halfway between Los Angeles and Palm Springs. Our location places us within one hour of surfing at the beach, camping in the desert, skiing in the mountains, or catching a play in Los Angeles. There are six major airports within an hour's drive.
