Chief Fellows Welcome Message


Welcome to the Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship Program at Texas Children's Hospital/Baylor College of Medicine! We are thrilled to showcase the distinctive attributes that set our program apart, making it an outstanding choice for your training.

Fellows primarily train at our Main Campus in the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world. TCH Main Campus is the largest free-standing children’s hospital in the world, the number one children’s hospital in Texas, and consistently ranks in the top 3 best children’s hospitals nationally. Our program also allows for electives at our two community campuses (TCH Woodlands and TCH West), allowing for additional exposure to a private practice style setting.

At TCH, we provide unparalleled clinical experiences within a diverse and supportive community, guided by experienced, esteemed, and nationally recognized faculty members. Annually administering over 50,000 anesthetics, the Texas Children's Hospital Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative & Pain Medicine offers fellows the opportunity to engage in a comprehensive spectrum of high-acuity neonatal and pediatric surgical cases. This includes cases involving both healthy children and those with complex medical disorders. Our program ensures a robust training experience, facilitated by the mentorship of our dedicated faculty members. Ample opportunities for research, advocacy, leadership, and teaching within the program empower fellows to explore their personal interests while evolving into well-rounded pediatric anesthesiologists, which has prepared them for successful careers in either private practice or academia upon graduation. We are proud of fostering a collegial and welcoming environment at Texas Children's Hospital.

Situated in the heart of Houston, the fourth largest and most diverse city in the country, our institution offers an ideal backdrop for personal and professional growth. Houston boasts an extensive food scene and convenient access to museums, parks, and sporting events. The city's low cost of living, combined with its vibrant urban life, makes it a perfect location for both young professionals and growing families.

We take great pride in the Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship Program at Texas Children's Hospital and eagerly anticipate the opportunity to share our experiences with you. Please explore our website, connect with us on our new Instagram page (@bcm_pedsanesfellows), and don't hesitate to reach out with any questions. Thank you for considering our program, and we look forward to the possibility of welcoming you to our community!
