Vlad Frenk, MD, FASA
Program Director, Anesthesiology Residency
Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Quinnipiac University Anesthesiology Residency program. Our residency is based at St. Vincent’s Medical Center (SVMC), a 473-bed facility within the Hartford HealthCare System. SVMC has been serving Bridgeport, one of the largest and most ethnically diverse cities in Connecticut, for over 120 years.
Our faculty has trained at premier programs and brings their experience and knowledge to Quinnipiac and Hartford HealthCare. Our anesthesiology residency program offers excellent clinical training amongst a diverse patient population, often with significant co-morbidities. Given the complexity of our patient population and the diversity of cases, our residents will be uniquely prepared for independent anesthesia practice. Our particular areas of interest and expertise are opioid-sparing and early recovery after surgery (ERAS) techniques. Additionally, our Regional Anesthesia fellowship program graduates one to two fellows each year.
