Thoracic Anesthesia

Neuroanesthesia

The goal of the fellowship is to enhance the skill and knowledge of trainees in perioperative care of neurosurgical patients. Foothills Medical Centre (FMC) is a tertiary referral site that offers the full spectrum subspecialty neurosurgical care including vascular, epilepsy, functional, CSF shunting, peripheral nerve, trauma, & skull base procedures. Over 1000 craniotomies are performed per year. FMC is also home to the largest spine surgery program in Canada; as such, fellowships will have exposure to a wide variety of procedures ranging from minimally invasive decompressions to complex deformity surgery.

To facilitate a comprehensive understanding of perioperative care for neurosurgical patients, additional rotations in neurocritical care in a dedicated neuroICU, neuromonitoring, and neurointerventional radiology are also provided.

Funding and support is available for academic pursuits. One fellowship position is offered per year.
