Fellowship | Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology

Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology Clinical Experience

The fellow will complete all the rotations and training at UK Chandler Medical Center. During the cardiac surgical operating room rotation, the fellow will be exposed to the entire gamut of surgical procedures including CABG (on and off pump), valve replacement and repair, thoracic aorta surgeries, as well as extensive heart transplantation, lung transplantation, Ventricular Assist Device placement, Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation and ECMO. Other clinical rotations include non-cardiac thoracic surgery (pulmonary and esophageal surgery), Cardiac Critical Care, TEE, Cardiopulmonary bypass and ECMO. Cardiac imaging education is an important component of this fellowship and includes TEE (including 3-D) as well as training in other imaging modalities (including TTE) with cardiology. Graduates should anticipate becoming eligible for certification in Advanced Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography (National Board of Echocardiography).

 

ADULT CARDIOTHORACIC ANESTHESIOLOGY DIDACTIC EXPERIENCE

Clinical training will be supplemented with a didactic program via Grand Rounds, Journal Clubs, lectures, one-on-one seminars with the faculty, and simulation-based training. The fellow will be offered the opportunity to participate in clinical research and encouraged to present at national or international conferences after completion of a scholarly project. The overarching goals are to nurture the post-graduate physician and to become expert in the field of Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology, both as a clinician and educator.
