Thoracic Anesthesiology Fellowship


The Thoracic Anesthesia Fellowship incorporates 12 months of extensive clinical experience with clinical/basic science research and exposure to allied specialties such as pulmonary function testing. Fellows develop independence providing anesthesia for a wide range of procedures including, but not limited to, lung resections, tracheal resections, esophagectomies, and anterior mediastinal masses. The fellows also assume a broader role supervising junior residents. Participation in a scholarly research project during the course of the Fellowship is required, for which sufficient non-clinical time is allotted. There is also the opportunity to earn supplemental income during the fellowship year. The deadline for all application materials is December 31st and decisions will be determined by February 1st for a July 1st start date.
