Head and Neck Anesthesiology Fellowship

Head & Neck – Advanced Airway Management Anesthesiology Fellowship

 The University of Michigan Department of Anesthesiology is delighted to offer a one year fellowship; providing advanced training in both the perioperative care of patients undergoing head and neck surgeries and advanced airway procedures. The fellowship provides excellent experience and training; preparing graduates for both academic and focused private practice. We believe our program provides the professional development and technical expertise essential to the optimal care of these often complex cases. Research opportunities are numerous; with fellows joining an active ongoing research program investigating outcomes in this fascinating patient group. Fellows have an essential role in the department’s medical education mission; sharing their knowledge and skills with the residents and medical students of the University of Michigan. Our program is flexible; tailored to the needs and experience of each fellow.

 Michigan Medicine provides a world class clinical experience. We work closely with our surgical colleagues; the departments of Otolaryngology and Maxillofacial surgery fully support our fellowship and have been involved in designing content and learning opportunities. Both departments are highly regarded academically. Otolaryngology is a tertiary center for management of head and neck cancer and reconstruction, subglottic stenosis, voice disorders, enlarged or diseased lymph nodes in the neck, salivary gland masses, thyroid tumors, vascular anomalies, vocal cord paralysis, facial paralysis, cochlear implants, acoustic neuromas, skull base surgery, congenital airway pathologies, and nose and sinus disease. Similarly, the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is a tertiary care center for craniofacial trauma, reconstructive bone grafting, implantology, orthognathic surgery, pediatric maxillofacial surgery, cleft lip and palate, tempromandibular joint disorders, sleep apnea, maxillofacial neoplasms, and reconstructive surgery.

 Thank you for your interest in our training program. Please take a look at our lectures, research and rotations. For more information and to inquire about applying, please do not hesitate to contact our Fellowship Program Director Benjamin Cloyd, M.D. and/or Fellowship Coordinator Rachel Corwin.
