Welcome From the Program Director

Luke Eaton

The University of Colorado Master of Science in Anesthesiology Program takes great pride in offering students the highest caliber of training from our faculty and the clinical opportunities provided by a world class facility. Anschutz Medical Campus, including the University of Colorado Hospital and Children’s Hospital Colorado, provides an unparalleled clinical learning experience and the Department of Anesthesiology faculty is heavily invested in the success of our students.  This rigorous 28-month program challenges students to become excellent clinical providers focused on the highest quality of patient care. 

Graduates of the CU AA Program join a very special group of alumni who have proceeded to represent the University locally as well as nationwide. Our program has graduates in Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Missouri, New Mexico, Texas and Wisconsin.

We celebrate continued success as far as the type of well-rounded, professional, and highly skilled graduates our students have become. We also commend all of the CU graduates on a record of 100% job placement and 100% passing on the National Certification Exam.

We look forward to continued success and growth.

Luke Eaton, MHSc, CAA, Program Director
