Nationwide Children’s Hospital offers four one-year ACGME accredited fellowship positions in pediatric anesthesiology. Over 25,000 anesthetics are performed annually at Nationwide Children's for patients undergoing complex cardiac, craniofacial, neonatal, neurosurgical, orthopedic, and urological procedures. This clinical volume coupled with the small number of ACGME fellows has allowed the department to offer potential applicants an outstanding clinical experience that is tailored to meet their expectations for a rewarding and challenging fellowship year. The Anesthesiology department at Nationwide Children's is committed to providing a robust clinical and educational experience for fellows in an environment that fosters scientific inquiry, research and support. For those interested in advanced training after completion of the pediatric anesthesiology fellowship, fellowships are offered in pediatric cardiac anesthesiology and pediatric regional anesthesiology.
Nationwide Children's is the only children’s hospital in the city of Columbus and as such is the primary pediatric experience for anesthesiology residency programs at Ohio State University (OSU) and Doctors Hospital with 3-5 residents rotating per month. Nationwide Children's recently opened a state-of-the-art 460-bed patient care tower and a freestanding ambulatory surgery center that has led to an expansion of anesthesia services. This clinical growth allows fellows a broader exposure to the numerous challenges of a modern day pediatric anesthesiologist. The department of Anesthesiology remains personable and collegial with fellows making up the heart of the educational mission. Nationwide Children's strives to create an atmosphere where fellows are mentored in a stimulating and supportive environment.
Nationwide Children's participates in the pediatric anesthesiology match program and places all four positions in the match.
