Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship Program


The Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship Program at Yale-New Haven Hospital is a 12-month program approved by the American Board of Anesthesiology and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Our program focuses on preparing our graduates to become leaders in pediatric anesthesiology. We provide the academic and clinical environment to ensure the success of our pediatric fellows. Candidates who possess an MD or DO degree and have completed an ACGME approved residency program in Anesthesiology may apply. We preferentially fill our spots outside the Match. Our fellows experience the full spectrum of surgical procedures during their training. Each fellow exceeds the minimum number of cases recommended by the ACGME.

  • The fellow receives a focused experience in regional anesthesia during the Block Rotation.
  • Yale University is proud to be one of only four sites nationally to participate in this prestigious program. The National Clinician Scholars Program offers unique clinical and community-based research training through intensive mentorship for clinicians as change agents driving policy-relevant research and partnerships to improve health and healthcare, and has grown out of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Program sites.

  • The Research Scholars Program also has a more “research-intensive” pathway, dubbed the “T32-RSP Pathway.” In this pathway, trainees work with mentors during the CA-1 and CA-2 years, and complete 6 months of research during the CA-3 year. Thereafter, T32-Research Scholars will go onto (typically) two years of research with their chosen mentors, often paired with a clinical fellowship of their choosing. At the completion of this intensive two-year research experience, T32-Research Scholars will be extremely well positioned to obtain independent funding of their own and go onto highly productive and independent careers in academic medicine.

  • As a fellow, you'll have the opportunity to participate in various clubs and programs, attend Grand Rounds, conferences, and departmental addresses.

  • Fellows are assessed by faculty both in and out of anesthesiology, and nurses. They are evaluated in the spectrum of the six ACGME core competencies.
