The Department of Anesthesia and Critical Care offers an ACGME-accredited one-year pediatric anesthesiology fellowship program at the University of Chicago/Comer Children’s Hospital. We have one fellowship spot open at this time for the 2019-2020 academic year.

A freestanding, 172-bed acute-care facility, Comer Children’s Hospital has been providing family-centered, comprehensive, state-of-the-art care since opening its doors in 2005. As a major tertiary academic referral center and a pediatric Level I trauma center, Comer provides care for children of all ages, from premature neonates to older adolescents, who present with all types of medical problems, ranging from the common to the rare and complex. Comer Children’s Hospital is also committed to serving the community and provides care to many Medicaid patients and to those without insurance.

Continuously accredited by the ACGME since 2008, our fellowship program prepares our graduates to become outstanding consultants in pediatric anesthesia. We offer a wide breadth of clinical anesthesia experience that includes routine pediatric surgical cases, a full range of pediatric surgical subspecialties, including neurosurgery, craniofacial, cardiac, otolaryngology, ophthalmology, orthopedic, urology, plastic, burn, trauma, and transplant surgery, and experience in pediatric critical care, neonatology, and pain management. Anesthetic care also occurs outside the operating room for diagnostic and therapeutic medical procedures, as well as in the cardiac catheterization lab, interventional radiology, and imaging suites. Subspecialty rotations in pain management and cardiac surgery are offered at Milwaukee Children’s and Lurie Children’s, respectively. The fellow engages with a diverse patient population in a wealth of challenging cases and trains with an active group of board-certified faculty who are strongly committed to teaching, education, research, and leadership. The fellowship didactic program includes a defined 12-month long curriculum on core topics in pediatric anesthesia. Participation in a scholarly project, quality improvement initiatives, and presentation at the annual Society for Pediatric Anesthesia conference are strongly encouraged and supported.
