Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellowship

Our ACGME-approved Fellowship in Obstetric Anesthesiology is designed to provide a comprehensive experience in all aspects of the practice of obstetric anesthesiology including clinical, administrative, teaching and research components.

The Division of Obstetric Anesthesia of the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative Care and Pain Medicine of NYU Langone Medical Center has been at the forefront of providing around-the-clock coverage to women choosing NYU Langone for their childbirth. Our service has steadily expanded, and we now care for more than 6,000 deliveries per annum.

Fellows in Obstetric Anesthesiology will be exposed to cutting-edge clinical practices, and will be able to take advantage of our close working relationships with obstetricians, pediatricians, and critical care specialists. The Division of Obstetric Anesthesia works seamlessly with these practitioners as a unified team to provide optimal care for our common patients. This solid infrastructure, which has been established over the course of many years, and our large caseload, are ideally suited to training of a fellow interested in practicing obstetric anesthesia.

Clinical care activities will take place in a wide variety of hospital settings including the labor and delivery unit, operating rooms, post anesthesia care unit, postpartum units, and intensive care units. Also, the obstetric anesthesiology fellow will have formal rotations in the neonatal intensive care unit and on the maternal-fetal medicine service. The fellow will be exposed to a rich didactic curriculum including formal and informal lectures and conferences. The fellow will also be required to complete a scholarly project that leads to both presentation at a national meeting and publication under the direction of a faculty mentor. Publication can occur after graduation from the fellowship program.

Moonlighting opportunities are available to the Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellow within the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative Care and Pain Medicine. So as not to interfere with the fellow’s experience in Obstetric Anesthesiology, moonlighting times will be limited to Friday evenings and Saturdays.

Interested applicants should send the following to our program coordinator, Elizabeth Lopez Elizabeth.Lopez@nyumc.org
