About the Program
The Baylor College of Medicine Texas Children's Hospital Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship is a one-year program approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
The Department of Anesthesiology at Texas Children's performs more than 50,000 anesthetics a year. These include nearly 1,000 cardiac surgery procedures, approximately 40 liver transplants, and the full range of neonatal and pediatric surgical procedures on healthy children and those with complex medical conditions. We are also actively involved in the delivery of anesthesia to gravid patients who present for fetal interventions.
Our practice is unique in that we work with both academic and community surgeons, which prepares our fellows for both academic and private practice careers. All faculty members are certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology and are fellowship-trained.
