University of Mississippi Medical Center, Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship

Batson Children’s Hospital at The University of Mississippi Medical Center is pleased to announce a new ACGME-approved Fellowship Program in Pediatric Anesthesiology!

We are looking to take one well-qualified Fellow for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Batson Children’s Hospital is Mississippi’s only pediatric hospital. We are a 130 bed facility located on and fully integrated into the UMMC campus. Batson boasts a 96 bed NICU and a 30 bed PICU, which includes a cardiac critical care division. We are Mississippi’s only pediatric Level 1 trauma center, transplant center, and congenital heart disease center. Our pediatric ORs perform over 8,000 cases per year, and cover a full range of pathophysiology and surgical specialties. Our fellow can expect to encounter complex pediatric disease, rare syndromes, and challenging surgical cases on a daily basis.

The pediatric anesthesia department covers 9 pediatric ORs in addition to MRI, CT, and pediatric cath lab. Our pediatric OR suite is located in the Children’s Hospital and is staffed only by pediatric specialists - anesthesiologists, surgeons, and nurses. Our pediatric cardiac OR and pedi cath lab have full schedules every day.

Our pediatric anesthesia fellow will benefit from highly individualized teaching, first pick of our index cases, ample experience with supervising CRNAs and residents, and supportive teaching faculty.

At this moment, we are considering fellowship applicants who would join our department during the summer of 2017.
