The MCW Obstetrical Anesthesia section offers a 6 or 12-month fellowship that provides both clinical subspecialty training and clinical research opportunities. This fellowship is designed to meet the needs of those interested in either an academic career or clinical practice.
The fellowship features rotations at two locations, providing care for healthy and high-risk parturients. The primary hospital is a private facility (obstetric anesthesia is managed by the MCW academic group) with approximately 4,000 deliveries per year. The fellow also will have some responsibility at our academic institution, Froedtert Hospital.
The fellow will have the opportunity to participate in clinical research undertaken by the obstetrical anesthesia group. Current research activities include combined spinal/epidural for labor and cesarean sections, and ephedrine for hypotension prophylaxis during spinal anesthesia. The fellow also will have the opportunity to participate in medical student and resident teaching under the supervision of the obstetric anesthesia faculty.
