About the Program

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship at the University of Iowa!  The pediatric anesthesia team is delighted to work in the beautiful University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital and would be proud to participate in your training.

Our one year ACGME-accredited program will expose you to all aspects of Pediatric Anesthesiology.  Our goal is to provide fellows with an outstanding clinical education to become capable independent pediatric anesthesiologists who are ready to pursue careers in academic medicine or private practice.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Pediatric Anesthesia Fellowship program is to provide an evidence-based, high quality sub-specialty education for anesthesiologists which will continually advance the safety and quality of anesthetic care, perioperative management, and alleviation of pain in children and develop future leaders in the field of pediatric anesthesiology.

Program Aims

1. Our primary aim is to recruit and train fellows to become highly competent and independent pediatric anesthesia consultants who achieve board-certification in Pediatric Anesthesiology by the American Board of Anesthesiology.

2. Fellows will have the support to develop teaching and communication skills: working with patients and families, junior learners, physician colleagues, and non-physician colleagues.

3. Fellows will have mentorship to develop skills for interpreting the medical literature, contributing to the medical literature, and developing the mindset for life-long learning.

4. Faculty development will be enhanced to help them become as effective in teaching and mentoring scholarly activity and quality improvement as they are with providing patient care
