Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital

Pediatric Anesthesia Fellowship Program

The Pediatric Anesthesia fellowship is a one-year, ACGME-accredited program designed to train the next generation of leaders in pediatric anesthesia.

Innovative Learning Environment

The Johns Hopkins All Children’s pediatric anesthesia fellowship program offers an innovative, collaborative, personalized and learner-centric environment. Fellows will develop superior skills in delivering family-engaged patient care through a systems-based model, advocating for safety, quality and value-based care, and in advancing scientific research and investigation.

Fellows will learn in a high-volume surgical environment that includes exposure to complex congenital malformation treatment programs (such as congenital diaphragmatic hernia and esophageal atresia) that draw patients from around the nation because of their innovative techniques and success rates. Fellows will also participate in our acute and chronic pain management program that focuses on limiting the use of opiates.

Our simulation center will expose Johns Hopkins All Children’s pediatric anesthesiology fellows to state-of-the-art simulation experiences with the most advanced technology available for simulation-based learning.

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Management

The Johns Hopkins All Children’s Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Management is nationally recognized for its quality outcomes and uniform practices. Our board-certified pediatric anesthesiologists are experienced in treating infants and children of all ages and support surgeons throughout Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. The department provides care and sedation to patients in Johns Hopkins All Children’s operating rooms, special procedures unit and MRI/CT services. They also care for MRI patients at our Outpatient Care location in Tampa.

Our anesthesiology team comes from esteemed institutions around the country, and several providers have been recognized as teacher of the year at other academic centers. Many of the program’s fellowship-trained and board-certified pediatric anesthesiologists have advanced training in areas such as pain management and congenital heart disease. The team also includes full-time certified pediatric nurse anesthetists.

Johns Hopkins All Children’s pediatric anesthesia department is the only one in the state of Florida to participate in Wake Up Safe, the only national pediatric anesthesia safety initiative.
