Welcome to Mayo Clinic's Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship! Please explore our website — we are excited about the unique aspects of our fellowship and proud of our graduated fellows, who populate both academic and private practices around the country and have become national leaders in our field.
Our primary mission is to keep the best educational opportunities constantly available to our fellows, freeing them to pick the best cases and fill their fellowship year with diverse and challenging experiences.
We accept two fellows each year. Because our program is small, each of our faculty is fully invested in the education and progress of each trainee. Our approach is collaborative; after an initial introductory period, we believe our fellows should ultimately function as junior faculty, exercising independent thinking and developing sophisticated plans — all with the supervision of an attending anesthesiologist.
While our program is small, the opportunities are enormous. At Mayo Clinic Children's Center, more than 200 medical providers in 40 medical and surgical specialties offer integrated care to more than 50,000 children and adolescents each year.
More than 11,000 pediatric procedures and anesthetics are performed annually at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, including Mayo Clinic Hospital — Rochester (Saint Marys Campus and Methodist Campus) and the Proton Beam Therapy Program, housed in the Jacobson Building. This allows two fellows plenty of interesting and challenging cases to choose from.
We are proud of our fellowship and our outstanding care of pediatric patients. Our history in pediatric medicine is long: Mayo Clinic was one of the pioneer medical centers to organize a pediatric practice. In 1921, 75 years before the dedication of Mayo Eugenio Litta Children's Hospital, Mayo opened its first pediatric section.
Now, our practice is growing exponentially, and as it does, our fellows thrive.
