Fellowship Training Program:
Fellowship in Pediatric Regional Anesthesiology
at Seattle Children's Hospital

The Department of Anesthesiology & Pain Medicine at Seattle Children's Hospital and the University of Washington is offering a fellowship in pediatric regional anesthesia. This will be a 12-month fellowship focused on assessment and treatment of infants, children and adolescents. In particular, the fellowship offers the training required to develop clinical excellence in pediatric regional anesthesia. At completion, the fellow will have acquired the skills needed to establish and/or lead a pediatric regional anesthesia program.


Seattle Children's is a 330-bed free standing children's hospital affiliated with the University of Washington. The Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine includes 6 regional anesthesia attendings. Our regional anesthesia service provides more than 2,500 central and peripheral blocks annually and has an active ambulatory nerve catheter program. Training includes advanced nerve stimulator and ultrasound guidance techniques in pediatric patients. The successful applicant will receive an Acting Instructor title for this 12-month full-time training appointment. 40% of time will be devoted to regional anesthesia training, equivalent to 20 weeks spent as the fellow working on the regional anesthesia team with a regional attending. 20% of time will be spent on research. The remaining 40% will be spent working as a supervising attending.


Applicants must have successfully completed an ACGME fellowship in pediatric anesthesia (or equivalent training). International medical graduates must have passed all 3 steps of the USMLEs. SCH/UW is building a culturally diverse faculty and strongly encourages applications from female and minority candidates.
