Michael Tang

Program Director

Vice Chairman of Anesthesia, Kaweah Health Medical Center, Visalia, CA 2017 - Present

“The Kaweah Health Faculty is excited about our anesthesiology residency training program. This addition to our teaching mission will benefit our current patients, as well as future generations of Central Valley residents, who can look forward to advanced anesthesia care available locally. We are looking for ambitious, dedicated, and curious new physicians from across the country that want to be part of something unique in anesthesia post-graduate education: a small town training program, with big city-like exposure; where our residents will be welcomed as colleagues from day one; where each new resident will have a faculty mentor for all four years of training; where residents can expect a training program with exceptional facilities, equipment, teaching, and experience; and all with great California sunshine.”
