Our innovative leadership in perioperative medicine fellowship has been created to help prepare the anesthesiologist leaders of the future. This dynamic one-year curriculum is designed to cultivate the applicant’s skills in leadership, quality and safety, perioperative management and perioperative medicine and can be customized to the candidate’s interests.

Fellows that are accepted into this program will receive formal and hands-on training in the management of anesthesia services, perioperative services, perioperative medicine, and the larger healthcare system. In perioperative management, the fellows will gain experience and knowledge in risk management, quality assurance, performance improvement, patient safety, regulatory affairs, compliance, billing and financial management. The fellowship will provide the opportunity to develop a practical understanding about the development and implementation of the Perioperative Surgical Home model of care. The fellow will gain leadership skills in building and monitoring evidence-based clinical pathways within a value-based accountable care organization paradigm. Fellows will gain further experience with supervision of medical students, residents, nurse practitioners and nurses within the context of the lively perioperative environment. Evidence-based opportunities to enhance patient care throughout the surgical continuum include: collaborative decision making, lifestyle modification before surgery, standardized in-hospital care, achieving full recovery, and using clinical data for quality improvement.

This fellowship consists of structured didactics, rotations with organizational leadership, and mentored clinical quality improvement projects. The fellow will participate in various taskforces and committees of the Quality Department and Risk and Regulatory Affairs. The curriculum has been developed to expose fellows to various quality and patient safety tools to effectively lead change. In order to maintain clinical competency, the fellows will maintain a small percentage of clinical practice as a part of the fellowship program. The fellow will have a chance to work with the department research staff as well as nationally acclaimed faculty at the university level during the fellowship.

The curriculum is designed to provide some flexibility tailored to each fellow’s needs. The fellow will have a primary mentor who will provide guidance in professional development and meet on a regular basis to provide feedback and assistance in achieving the fellow’s goals.

This fellowship is 12 months in length and may be modified at the discretion and agreement between the fellow and the Program Director. Recruitment is ongoing and positions are dependent upon extramural funding.
