North Shore-LIJ, NAPA Launch Anesthesia Residency
by Claude Solnik
North American Partners in Anesthesia and the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System are launching an anesthesiology residency program at the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine next July.
North American Partners, the primary anesthesiology provider for the health system, is one of the largest anesthesiology firms nationwide.
North American Partners CEO and Chief Medical Officer Dr. John F. Di Capua serves as senior vice president of anesthesiology services for the system.
Di Capua, who is Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine’s Peter Walker Associate professor and chairman of anesthesiology, will chair the residency program.
North Shore-LIJ said North American Partners “established the program curriculum and supported critical research and scholarly initiatives.”
North American Partners division chiefs and anesthesiologists will serve as faculty for the anesthesia residency program, providing clinical training, expertise and research opportunities.
“NAPA has committed to partnering and aligning with North Shore-LIJ in its endeavors,” Di Capua said. “A private practice within an academic setting allows for a unique training experience, preparing a physician for the demands of a modern day practice.”
Most of the residency program’s clinical work will be done at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, as well as Long Island Jewish Medical Center and Cohen Children’s Medical Center in New Hyde Park.
Residents also will be given monthlong assignments at Franklin Hospital in Valley Stream and Syosset Hospital.
