Integrated Combined Pediatrics and Anesthesiology Residency Training Program

The Medical College of Wisconsin and Affiliated Hospitals (MCWAH), Children's Hospital of Wisconsin (CHW) and Froedtert Hospital (FH), developed the first combined Pediatric-Anesthesiology Residency Training Program in the Midwest. The MCW Combined Pediatrics and Anesthesiology Residency Training Program was approved by the American Board of Pediatrics and the American Board of Anesthesiology in 2013 and is listed in the NRMP Directory as Pediatrics-Anesthesia. This integrated residency-training platform will allow for dual board certification in both Pediatrics and in Anesthesiology after five years of graduate medical training; one year less than nonintegrated training curriculums, with the programmatic goal to develop leaders in the fields of Pediatrics, Anesthesiology, and their respective subspecialties.

The integrated program's overall training objective is the trainee's career development as experts in the care of children with complex medical and surgical conditions who are hospitalized and/or require perioperative/periprocedural management. The integrated training option is ideal for students wishing to complete training with a fellowship in pediatric critical care medicine and/or pediatric anesthesiology, 2013 marked the first year of recruitment to the combined training program. Michael Weisgerber, MD (Associate Professor of Pediatrics) will serve as Program Director and Herodotos Ellinas, MD (Associate Professor of Anesthesiology), John P. Scott MD (Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology and Pediatrics), and Michael T. Meyer MD (Associate Professor of Pediatrics-Critical Care) will serve as Associate Program Directors. This program will recruit one resident annually. The development of this MCW combined Pediatric and Anesthesiology training program is one of a select group of clinical and academic medical centers within the United States and the first training program in the Midwest.

"Milwaukee has officially become a destination for a new and exciting combined training program in Pediatrics and Anesthesiology, one of an elite group of academic centers in the United States and the only one in the Midwest. Trainees graduating from our program will be proficient in the perioperative care of children with complex medical and surgical disorders, and will have the unique opportunity to pursue careers in both pediatric anesthesiology and pediatric critical care medicine." - John Scott, MD Associate Program Director
