Overview

The Department of Anesthesiology at the University Of Maryland School Of Medicine has three ACGME-approved Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology fellowship positions. Given our current surgical volume (over 1400 cases), CT anesthesiology fellows receive ample opportunity to gain both personal and supervisory experience in managing the most interesting and challenging cases. Each CT Anesthesiology fellow will participate in a total of six months in the cardiovascular operating rooms where he or she will both supervise and individually perform CT anesthesia cases (approximately 1/3 and 2/3). Fellows take approximately four weekday calls and one weekend of call coverage per month and have a guaranteed post call day free of clinical duties after every call period. In addition to the cardiac operating rooms, fellows spend one month in the Cardiac Surgery ICU (CSICU), have two months of elective time, two months of dedicated TEE time, and one month of thoracic anesthesia experience.

The CT Anesthesiology fellows are encouraged to pursue scholarly activities and the faculty are highly supportive of these endeavors. The fellows have a professional development/education fund that can be used to attend meetings or to purchase educational materials. Fellows have the opportunity to attend the SCA Perioperative TEE meeting in Atlanta, GA and other local and national meetings such as the Society for Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists Annual Meeting.
