From UWSMPH - Department of Anesthesiology
Ambulatory Anesthesia & Administrative Medicine Fellowship
The ambulatory anesthesia section of the UW Department of Anesthesiology provides anesthetics for more than 9,000 adult and pediatric operative and procedural cases annually. Cases cover the gamut of subspecialties including orthopedics, podiatry, otolaryngology, ophthalmology, interventional radiology, general surgery, plastic and aesthetic surgery, dental and maxillofacial surgery, urology, dermatology, and others. Many of these anesthetics are provided at the UW Hospital Outpatient Surgery Center, separate from the inpatient operating rooms. The fellow will also have the opportunity to provide clinical care at a freestanding Outpatient center and one or more office procedure sites.
The University of Wisconsin Department of Anesthesiology offers a flexible educational experience in both the clinical and administrative aspects of Ambulatory Anesthesia. One and two year positions are available.
This element of the one or two year fellowship experience offers an opportunity to obtain the necessary administrative and business education in preparation for a career managing most aspects of ambulatory or office-based surgery organizations. The fellowship can be tailored to meet the needs of the applicant, allowing one or two years of business courses through the nationally renowned University of Wisconsin School of Business. Courses in fiscal management, leadership, and entrepreneurship will enable anesthesiologists to evaluate and direct the management of any clinical practice. Other opportunities include attending workshops sponsored by the Association of Anesthesia Clinical Directors or the American Society of Anesthesiologists.
