Fellowship Training

One year, ACGME-accrediated Fellowship positions (CA5 levels) are available for graduates of accredited training programs who wish for advanced training in anesthesia for cardiac, thoracic, and vascular surgery. Emphasis is placed on anesthetic management of adult and pediatric patients for the entire spectrum of cardiovascular and transplant surgical care. Training in transesophageal echocardiography, supervision of cardiopulmonary bypass, consultation on non-surgical cardiac patients, coagulation management, and postoperative intensive care are important elements of fellowship training. Research opportunities include both clinical and laboratory investigations.
