9 months general OR
(including cardiac and regional anesthesia)
Note that due to our small size our fellows will do approximately 1 cardiac case each week with a volume similar to 2 dedicated months. Fellows will also do approximately 1-2 regional and/or neuraxial blocks each week as well. Call is for complex fellow level cases and occurs approximately every 4th night and every 4th weekend from home.
1 month PICU
Our fellow will act as a first year PICU fellow while rotating. You will have the opportunity to be immersed in the ICU team and act in a supervisory roll for junior residents. This is an invaluable experience.
2 weeks NICU elective
There is the opportunity to spend 2 weeks in our Level IV surgical NICU following all the complex patients.
2 weeks Acute Pain Service
Research and Academic Time
We attempt to provide 1-2 academic days to our fellow each month to allow studying for boards and work on scholarly projects.

Our peds anesthesia group sends faculty on international trips 1-2 times per year. We have a well-established relationship with the University Hospital in Leon Nicaragua. The fellow would have the opportunity to participate in these trips if space permits.
