The Pediatric Anesthesiology fellowship is offered through Nemours Children's Clinic in Jacksonville, FL, under the sponsorship of Mayo Clinic. The one-year fellowship includes nine months of operating room, post-anesthesia care unit and pediatric pain service rotations during which fellows care for children undergoing all types of pediatric surgery. The cardiac, neurosurgical and chronic pain rotations are longitudinal throughout the year, thereby maximizing the educational opportunities for these disciplines. Fellows spend one or two months in pediatric intensive care rotations. One month is dedicated to an elective of the fellow's choice. The remaining month is provided for vacation, educational conferences and opportunities to interview for a postgraduate position. Individuals completing this fellowship will be well prepared for a career in either academic or private practice anesthesia.
