I finished writing this article with a bittersweet sentiment. Having completed anesthesiology (and fellowship) training has given me the time to reflect and look back at my years as a trainee across two major academic centers in large metropolitan areas. The first thing that comes to mind is my deepest appreciation for my mentors. Not only for teaching me the technical aspects of our field, but for taking the time to help me grow both personally and as a professional.
I remember my first day of anesthesiology training like it was yesterday.
The whirlwind of learning was immediate, and I would recommend all trainees take advantage of their time to ask questions, form relationships and search for mentors (I cannot emphasize this point enough). For this, I have to personally thank Mark Zakowski, M.D. (Division Chief of OB anesthesia at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center) and Michaela Farber, M.D. (Program Director of OB anesthesia at Brigham and Women’s Hospital) for putting me on a path of collaborative “inter-connectedness” and showing me the power of “reaching across the aisle” to other specialties.
