The Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Georgia is an ACGME accredited, one year program.
The fellowship in pediatric anesthesiology was created to further specialize clinical training and knowledge in the perioperative care of our very youngest patients, from neonates up to 21 years old. Since 2013, the American Board of Anesthesiology has offered an examination to confirm board certification in the sub-specialty of pediatric anesthesiology. Our goal is to get you ready for an amazing career in the sub-specialty of pediatric anesthesia. We plan to have one fellowship spot per year beginning in the 2020-2021 academic year.
Our fellowship offers twelve clinical rotations for the fellowship year. The rotations include acute pain, general pediatric surgery, PICU, supervision, an elective month, and two months of cardiac with an option for a third. All surgical service lines are represented at The Children’s Hospital of Georgia. We have a 36-bed Level III NICU, as well as a 13-bed pediatric intensive care unit.
