Anesthesia residents spend approximately 4-5 months on pediatric service during residency. Rotations start as early as the CA1 year and residents are ready to independently care for patients by graduation.

A comprehensive didactic program specific to Pediatric Anesthesia is provided weekly in addition to a weekly General Anesthesia curriculum.

Recent graduates who have shown an interest in a Pediatric Anesthesia subspecialty have successfully matched with their desired programs. We are also delighted when they return to work with us after their pediatric fellowships.



Opened in 1997, the Children’s Hospital of Georgia and is the only healthcare facility in the region dedicated exclusively to pediatric care. The Children's Hospital is consistently ranked in the top 10% nationally in measures of quality of care and is one of the leading hospitals having developed and implemented programs for Patient and Family Centered Care
