Throughout the Obstetric Fellowship, the fellow will work closely with Obstetric Anesthesiology faculty to teach daily resident conferences and provide Journal Club lectures. Fellows will participate in the section's research efforts and attend the Society of Obstetric Anesthesiology and Perinatology conference. Fellows will be assigned flexible rotations in labor and delivery, where they will run the floor, supervising and directing anesthesia residents. Overall, the fellow will be expected to master the anesthetic management of not only routine labor and delivery, but also a case mix of:
- Cesarean section - both routine and high-risk
- Assisted second-stage delivery and ICU management of high-risk patients
- Dilation and curettage
- Post-partum tubal ligation
- EXIT procedures
- Fetal interventions
Fellows will complete a two-week rotation in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) where they are expected to gain knowledge of neonatal resuscitation.
