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.
Applicants must have a DDS or DMD from an ADA-accredited American Dental School or Canadian Dental School and must be eligible for licensing in the State of Indiana. Non-U.S. candidates must be proficient in the English language. A current curriculum vitae and recent photo are required as part of the application process.
Applicants must be US citizens and permanent residents of the United States. The program accepts the J-1 Visa but not the H1-B Visa or F-1 Visa. International applicants must have completed their dental degree within the United States to be eligible for licensure. The Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) Office of International Affairs may be able to answer additional questions.
