Who We Are
PAS physicians are licensed medical doctors who have also completed residency training in anesthesiology and are certified by The American Board of Anesthesiology as consultants in the specialty. All of our anesthesiologists are trained in the provision of all types of anesthesia and in the delivery of intensive care medicine. A number of our physicians also have obtained subspecialty certification, having completed clinical fellowships in areas such as cardiac, pediatric, obstetric or neurosurgical anesthesia.
Our Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) are Master prepared Advanced Practice Nurses. Their background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing with a minimum of one year in a critical care setting. Our CRNA’s are all graduates with a Master’s degree in Nurse Anesthesia from an accredited Nurse Anesthesia program. Specialized courses and training prepare them for a broad scope of practice and upon graduation must pass a board exam to be certified. CRNA’s provide anesthesia in collaboration with a PAS Anesthesiologist for a variety of cases.
All of our providers are engaged in continuing medical education programs. Anesthesiologists obtain CME hours through the Washington State Society of Anesthesiologists and the American Society of Anesthesiologists. CRNAs complete continuing education requirements through the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists. Additionally, all PAS providers complete Advanced Cardiac Life Support training every two years.
