Graduate medical education in anesthesiology at Mayo Clinic

Page Content


The one-year Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, offers a robust experience with children of all ages and all levels of acuity. The fellowship is structured to maximize learning and optimize the clinical experience of our trainees.

The role of the pediatric fellow is to acquire experience and gain proficiency with a wide variety of pediatric anesthetic techniques and pediatric surgical cases. Accordingly, this goal is the primary consideration in directing the day-to-day work assignments.

Highlights of the program include:

  • A multidisciplinary approach to education that includes contributions from recognized experts in pediatric pain medicine, critical care, psychology, transfusion medicine, and regional anesthesia
  • Fellows are involved in simulation training throughout the year, both as participants and as leaders
  • A one-month research rotation, as well as the opportunity for an additional fellowship year focusing on research
  • Weekly interactive didactics specifically created for our fellows
  • International opportunities to perform anesthetic care in resource-poor environments
