The Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellowship program at UT Southwestern Medical Center is a 12-month, ACGME accredited training program devoted to the comprehensive anesthetic management of women during pregnancy and the puerperium. During this training, the fellow will be exposed to various aspects of obstetrics anesthesiology, including low and high-risk obstetric cases, interpretation of fetal heart rate monitoring, antepartum fetal testing and high-risk antepartum care, clinical research, and neonatology. The goal of the obstetric anesthesia fellowship is to foster and develop obstetric anesthesia skills in the high-risk parturient, as well as to enrich the practice of clinical obstetric anesthesia by developing an academic and research-oriented approach to patient care. The objectives of the fellowship are to complete the required clinical rotations, thereby accruing the knowledge and skills needed to take care of high-risk deliveries. In addition, the research rotations will allow the fellow to obtain the necessary academic focus inherent in a university-practice setting. Lastly, each fellow must either publish a case report, original research article, or present an abstract at a national meeting during their fellowship year under the guidance of an obstetric anesthesia faculty member.
