Anesthesiology for Professionals

Clinical Elective Program for Fellows

Fellows may choose one clinical elective to enhance their training experience. Any elective must be pre-approved by the Director of the Department of Anesthesiology. Each Fellow must submit a proposed budget for the elective to the Director along with his/her request. Elective time is limited to one to two weeks (a maximum of 10 workdays).  Fellows choosing an elective that requires travel are asked to work one Saturday OR, without compensation, to help defray expenses.

Previous fellow elective options have included:

  • One additional week on the Acute Pain Service
  • One week’s observership with the Interventional Pain Management Team
  • One week’s experience with the Critical Care Team
  • One to two weeks medical mission/volunteerism opportunity
  • One to two weeks clinical and teaching experience at an approved institution
  • One week (five days) of non-clinical time dedicated to academic/research activities
  • One to two weeks as an academic observer at another regional anesthesia/acute pain medicine program
  • Two weeks at Paracelsus University in Salzburg, which includes clinical work and presentation of a lecture
  • One week in Copenhagen attending an advanced course in Focus Assessed Transthoracic Echocardiography (FATE)

Fellows may also submit a proposal for a self-designed elective to the Director.
