Education is an essential component of the Department of Anesthesiology & Pain Medicine's mission. Pediatric anesthesia experience is provided to anesthesiology residents from The Ohio State University and OhioHealth Doctors Hospital, as well as to student nurse anesthetists from programs in Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia.
The department has an active fellowship program offering a one-year ACGME-approved curriculum for training in pediatric anesthesiology following completion of the standard four-year residency in anesthesiology. Training also is provided for two to three international fellows each year. The limited number of fellowship positions ensures intensive training with complex cases in addition to more common pediatric anesthesia procedures.
Additional subspecialty training is offered in pediatric cardiac anesthesiology, pediatric regional anesthesia and acute pain management, quality improvement and research.
