Pediatric Anesthesia

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 ACGME-accredited fellowship in pediatric anesthesiology. Our fellows receive thorough, multi-faceted training and emerge with the expertise to care for even the most critically ill child.

Our fellows have the unique opportunity of serving children from not only the culturally diverse borough of the Bronx, but also those who travel to CHAM from all around the tri-state area, country and the globe. In addition to the most advanced clinical skills, we train fellows to understand the various developmental and psychological stages of their young patients.

At CHAM, we handle over 4000 surgical cases a year across all subspecialties. Fellows will rotate through our pediatric intensive care unit for one month, the pediatric pain service for one month; receive one month of elective time, as well as 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 NRMP program for both of these positions.
