Anesthesiology, Perioperative Care & Pain Medicine Fellowships Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellowship

Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellowship

Our Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellowship provides physicians with a comprehensive training experience in all aspects of obstetric anesthesiology, including clinical care, research, teaching, and administration. This one-year training program, approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, is offered through the Division of Obstetric Anesthesiology, a part of NYU Langone’s Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative Care, and Pain Medicine.

Fellows become part of a team that is at the forefront of providing around-the-clock coverage to women choosing NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital for their childbirth. Our obstetric anesthesiology service has steadily expanded, and we now provide care for 6,000 deliveries annually.

Fellowship Clinical Training

Fellows are exposed to the latest evidence-based clinical practices and can take advantage of our close working relationships with obstetricians, pediatricians, and critical care specialists. The Division of Obstetric Anesthesiology works seamlessly with these practitioners as a unified team to provide optimal care for our shared patients. This well-established infrastructure combined with our large caseload makes us ideally suited to training fellows interested in practicing obstetric anesthesiology.

Clinical care activities 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. Fellows have formal rotations in the neonatal intensive care unit and on the maternal–fetal medicine service.

Fellowship Didactic Program and Scholarly Project

Fellows are exposed to a rich didactic curriculum, including formal and informal lectures and conferences. They are also 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.

Additional Work Opportunities for Fellows

Opportunities to moonlight are available within the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative Care, and Pain Medicine. Moonlighting times are limited to Friday evenings and Saturdays, so work does not interfere with obstetric anesthesiology training.

Fellowship Application Process

We accept one fellow each year and participate in the SF Match. Please visit the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology for information on the fellowship application process and to access the common application.
