Children's of Mississippi and Batson Children's Hospital at the University of Mississippi Medical Center are pleased to announce a new ACGME-approved fellowship program in Pediatric Anesthesiology. We will accept one fellow for the 2017-18 academic year.
Our pediatric anesthesia fellow will benefit from highly individualized teaching, first pick of our index cases, ample experience with supervising CRNAs and residents, and supportive teaching faculty.
Batson Children's Hospital, Mississippi's only pediatric hospital, is 130-bed facility located on and fully integrated into the UMMC campus. Our hospital includes a 96-bed NICU and a 30-bed PICU, which includes a cardiac critical care division. We are Mississippi's only pediatric Level 1 trauma center, transplant center and congenital heart disease center. Our pediatric ORs perform over 8,000 cases per year, and cover a full range of pathophysiology and surgical specialties. Our fellow can expect to encounter complex pediatric disease, rare syndromes and challenging surgical cases on a daily basis.
The Pediatric Anesthesia department covers nine pediatric ORs in addition to MRI, CT and pediatric cath lab. Our pediatric OR suite is located in the Children's Hospital and is staffed only by pediatric specialists - anesthesiologists, surgeons and nurses. Our pediatric cardiac OR and pedi cath lab have full schedules every day.
As members of the Pediatric Anesthesia department, we believe that we have a great educational opportunity for the right candidate, and we are looking forward to welcoming applicants! Thank you for your interest. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
