Private practice anesthesiology training appears to be preferred over academic rotations by emergency medicine residents, according to a University of Utah analysis. For those trained in private practice, the average number of intubations was 4.6 per day, compared with 1.5 per day for residents trained in academic settings. The authors noted that alternative settings may be beneficial for training in areas that have competition among trainees.
