The Department of Anesthesiology at Baylor College of Medicine offers a 12-month fellowship program certified by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners in obstetric, gynecologic and perinatal anesthesiology.

The Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellowship Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. We have one accredited position per year.

The Harris Health Service at Ben Taub Hospital serves the community of Harris County in Houston, Texas and is affiliated with Baylor College of Medicine. At Ben Taub Hospital we perform approximately 5,000 deliveries, and majority of our obstetric patients are high-risk or critically ill parturients. We have become a center of excellence for our Harris Health patients with placenta accreta because of the outstanding care rendered by the perinatal team at BTH.

Ben Taub Hospital is one of the referral centers in the South East Texas for patients opting for vaginal birth after cesarean. Our VBAC case load has increased exponentially in the last few years and our success rate for VBAC deliveries is 72 percent.
