The Midwest Fellow Boot Camp brings together experienced pediatric anesthesiology physicians and fellows from across the Midwest for an exceptional one-day training event.

The event exposes trainees to multiple pediatric emergency simulation scenarios, and gives fellows numerous educational opportunities that may include regional anesthesia, difficult airway techniques, neuroaxial techniques, acupuncture and use of a standardized patient for difficult conversations.

Fellows and faculty from training programs across the Midwest and Canada are welcome to attend this rigorous educational experience!

The Midwest Fellow Boot Camp was established in 2017 in collaboration with faculty from the Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania, who run an established East Coast Fellow Boot Camp.

For participating programs

  • We need faculty volunteers! This event requires at least one faculty member to do sim or skills stations per every one to two fellow attendees. Faculty volunteers will receive a certificate and thank-you letter as invited faculty for a regional seminar (promotable educator activity); also, it’s a great way to form new regional friendships!

  • Do you know simulation techs? We are looking for additional volunteers and can pay stipend/expenses. Please reach out!

  • All Boot Camp supplies and space is donated by Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin; we may (depending on group size) need additional sim babies or other portable “borrowables” from centers. This is essential to keeping costs down!
