Master of Medical Science in Anesthesia

Anesthesiologist Assistant

Learn how to be a leader on the Anesthesia Care Team

The Master of Medical Science in Anesthesia (MMSc-A) program is designed to provide students with the didactic, clinical, and simulation education required to deliver safe, patient-centered anesthetic care as a Certified Anesthesiologist Assistant (CAA).

CAAs are an integral part of the anesthesia care team, working with physician anesthesiologists to provide the highest quality of care to patients across the country. The anesthesia care team can consist of one physician anesthesiologist and, in Ohio, up to four CAAs. CAAs care for some of the most ill patients during some of their most vulnerable times of need, medically guiding the patient throughout the preoperative, intraoperative, and immediate postoperative periods of their surgeries.

The NEOMED MMSc-A program uses state of the art, high-fidelity simulation, an innovative didactic curriculum and hands-on clinical experiences to ensure students are equipped to provide a superb anesthesia experience for patients across the country.
