The Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine Department of Anesthesiology utilizes the physician-led anesthesia care team (ACT) approach to patient care involving the collaboration of anesthesiologists, fellows, residents, certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), student registered nurse anesthetists (SRNAs), and anesthesia technicians.  Our team of over 75 CRNAs provides anesthesia care for many types of surgical procedures including neurosurgery, vascular, trauma, and plastics, transplants, and other non-operating room anesthesia procedures (NORA). CRNAs administer general, neuraxial, and monitored anesthesia care for scheduled and emergency surgical, obstetric, and diagnostic procedures throughout the Northwestern medical campus. In partnership with our anesthesiologist colleagues, our goal is to provide high-quality, safe anesthesia care while adhering to our Patients First mission.
