Welcome to



Education & Training

The Division of Pediatric Anesthesiology is committed to providing educational programs in a collaborative learning environment that enables students, residents and fellows to acquire and maintain the full range of skills necessary to provide the best care possible to children who have become sick or injured.

We offer an exemplary one-year fellowship in pediatric anesthesiology accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Our fellows receive thorough, multifaceted training and emerge with the expertise to care for even the most critically ill children. 

Our fellows have the unique opportunity of serving children from the culturally diverse borough of the Bronx, as well as those who travel to CHAM from around the tri-state area, the country and the globe. In addition to training our fellows in the most advanced clinical skills, we train them to understand the various developmental and psychological stages of their young patients. 

At CHAM, we handle more than 4,000 surgical cases a year across all subspecialties. Fellows rotate through our pediatric intensive care unit for one month and the pediatric pain service for one month, and they receive one month of elective time and one month of research time. 

During the remaining time, fellows perform pediatric general as well as pediatric neurosurgical, thoracic and cardiac anesthesia in CHAM operating rooms and offsite locations.

We offer two positions annually and participate in the National Resident Matching Program for both of these positions. Applications should be completed by February of the match year, and we typically interview during April and June.
