The Department of Pediatric Anesthesia at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital offers a one-year, ACGME-accredited Fellowship in Pediatric Anesthesiology.

Our clinical volume, breadth of surgical and medical expertise, and outstanding faculty provide a robust and supportive setting to hone one’s skills, knowledge, and clinical experience. We pride ourselves on the quality of the healthcare we deliver, and the collegiality and warmth of our work environment.

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center is a nationally renowned leader in pediatric healthcare, with a reputation for excellence in patient care, research, and medical education. The hospital boasts a large and diverse surgical volume with over 35,000 cases performed in the last year.

Our Fellows have an outstanding clinical experience which includes a comprehensive selection of cases in general surgery, cardiac, fetal, transplant, trauma, orthopedics, neurosurgery, craniofacial, and much more. They rotate in our main campus operating room (30+ operating rooms), ambulatory surgery center (8+ operating rooms), cardiac suite (5 operating rooms), non-OR locations (Radiology, Oncology, Dental), PICU, CICU, and on the Acute Pain Service. A broad range of electives and international opportunities are also available to deepen the clinical and the non-clinical experience.

Graduates from our fellowship program have gone on to pursue highly successful careers at top institutions across the nation, both academic and private practice. Many have also chosen to stay with us as faculty, or to join us in one of our options for advanced fellowship training.

Our thriving academic department and exceptional faculty are committed to advancing patient care, training, and research in pediatric anesthesia. As a fellowship program, we are focused on the highest quality of education, as well as a departmental culture that is supportive and ever-evolving. We believe in having a growth mindset that encompasses both the professional as well as the personal sides of our careers.

That is why our fellowship program has a large focus on mentorship and coaching partnerships, skill-building towards transitioning into attending practice, and wellness. These robust programs stand beside our clinical experience as the core pillars of our fellowship. We are passionate about the quality of the Cincinnati Children’s Pediatric Anesthesia Fellowship Program, and we invite you to explore our educational opportunities, and we thank you for considering Cincinnati Children's for your professional training.
