Since 1992, the Section of Pediatric Anesthesia has responded to a growing demand for anesthetic and analgesic care for children undergoing surgery in the Pediatric Surgery Center, and pain management for patients in the Children's Hospital. In response to that growth, we are:
- Expanding our clinical database
- Redesigning the pain and sedation service
- Developing an educational plan for our residents
- Launching major research initiatives
Our residents receive extensive clinical exposure, as well as a series of core specialty lectures in pediatric anesthesia. Pediatric Critical Care fellows are required to rotate through Pediatric Anesthesia. The high success in job placement for our fellows reflects the strength of our fellowship program in pediatric anesthesia.
