Dental Anesthesia Fellowship

During this one-year non-ACGME-accredited program, dental anesthesia fellows work under the direct supervision of academic anesthesiologists at the Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital to provide general anesthesia and sedation for a variety of operative cases. Fellows can expect to receive intensive training in airway management, intravenous access and cardiovascular physiology. Fellows receive a salary, benefits and paid vacation.

Three dental anesthesia fellowship positions are available each year. This is a great opportunity to obtain exposure to the field of dental anesthesiology or to further skills in the area of sedation and airway management. It also serves as a powerful curriculum vitae-builder for placement into an oral surgery or accredited dental anesthesia residency.
