Texas Children's Hospital, one of the nation's premier tertiary pediatric facilities, is a 456-bed health care institution providing not only comprehensive clinical care, but also innovative research focused on the pediatric patient. More than 20,000 anesthetics are performed at TCH each year.
The Texas Children's Hospital Pediatric Anesthesia Fellowship is a one-year ACGME-approved fellowship program. The Anesthesiology group at TCH performs more than 35,000 anesthetics per year, including more than 25,000 OR cases, nearly 1,000 cardiac procedures, about 20 liver transplants, and the full range of neonatal and pediatric surgical procedures on healthy children as well as those with complex medical conditions. Our practice is unique in that we work with both academic and community surgeons, which prepares our graduates for both private practice as well as academic careers. All of the faculty are specially trained in pediatric anesthesiology and are board certified or are in the board certification process. A number of our faculty have additional board certifications in pediatrics and critical care medicine.
Anesthesia faculty and residents care for pediatric patients undergoing a vast array of procedures including all types of elective surgery, liver transplantation, conjoined twins separation, and major neurosurgical, orthopedic, and plastics operations. Remote site anesthesia activities include cardiac catheterization and sedation for a variety of interventional and radiographic techniques. Weekly conferences include departmental Grand Rounds, presentation of core material for residents, and morbidity and mortality conferences. Clinical investigation includes interactions among faculty from anesthesiology and other departments with TCH. Ongoing clinical investigations include the effect of anesthetics on myocardial function among children with congenital heart disease, changes in pulmonary function and optimizing mechanical ventilation for children undergoing heart surgery.
A pediatric pain consultation service and subspecialty pediatric cardiovascular anesthesiology are also prominent parts of our program.
The Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital Pediatric Anesthesia Fellowship is committed to participating in the inaugural Pediatric Anesthesia Match, managed by the NRMP. Our six positions will be filled through the NRMP Match.
