The Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesia Fellowship at the University of Iowa is a one-year ACGME-accredited program. Nine months of the fellowship year is dedicated to clinical anesthesia for cardiac and thoracic surgery, and one month is focused on post-operative intensive care of adult cardiac and thoracic patients in the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit. Our mission is to develop leaders in the adult cardiothoracic anesthesia community, and we are excited to be at the forefront of training these essential specialists.

University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics is a Level 1 Trauma Center, a Comprehensive Stroke Center of Excellence, a Certified Destination Ventricular Assist Device Center, and an ECMO Center of Excellence. Every year, the Cardiothoracic Anesthesia Division handles an average of 450 thoracic cases, 350 adult cardiac cases, 100 pediatric complex congenital heart disease cases, and about three dozen heart/lung transplant cases, as well as 600 cases through the Interventional Cardiovascular Program.
