Paediatrics

This one-year fellowship is intended to provide trainees with academic and clinical educational opportunities in the perioperative management of pediatric patients undergoing anesthesia.

Our program provides comprehensive exposure to pediatric anesthesia. This includes exposure to ambulatory/day surgery, thoracic and abdominal, ENT and airway, neurosurgical, craniofacial, orthopedic and spine, urological and renal transplant surgeries as well as neonatal index cases. Fellows are also exposed to our pediatric acute pain service and our complex chronic pain pediatric program. Pediatric cardiac anesthesia exposure is available through our association with the University of Alberta in Edmonton, where fellows spend a one to two month rotation at the Stollery Children’s Hospital. Elective time in pediatric intensive care is available for interested fellows. 

Approximately 20% of time is protected for non-clinical work and research.  We have educational rounds for the fellows as well as weekly departmental academic rounds and a monthly journal club. 

One fellowships position is offered per year, typically starting each July. Alternative start dates can be considered.
