Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesia
The Cardiovascular Anesthesia subspecialty offers an ACGME-approved, one-year fellowship designed to provide clinical subspecialty training and clinical research opportunities. The clinical fellowship is flexible and designed to meet the needs of those interested in either an academic career or clinical practice.
Fellows rotate through the cardiovascular intensive care unit to develop expertise in postoperative care. Fellows gain comprehensive experience in intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) through training in the operating room, journal clubs, TEE review sessions, a dedicated rotation in the Zablocki Veterans Affairs Echocardiography Laboratory, and state-of-the-art simulation. Fellows are fully prepared to successfully complete National Board of Echocardiography certification in Advanced Perioperative TEE. Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in clinical or basic science research.
