UC San Diego Fellowship in Obstetric Anesthesia

UC San Diego Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellowship is currently working toward ACGME accreditation and has enrolled in the San Francisco Match, https://sfmatch.org/ this year.  Our program complies with all ACGME requirements for Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellowships.
 
Our Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellowship is a one-year program dedicated to the development of compassionate, knowledgeable, skillful physician leaders who provide comprehensive care to peripartum patients and their families.
 
Our fellows benefit from exposure to over 3,000 deliveries annually ranging from low-risk, birth center care to high-risk referral cases for maternal heart disease, abnormal placentation, and other complicated maternofetal conditions.  The division of Obstetric Anesthesiology is an integral part of the multidisciplinary peripartum care team, and our fellows serve as leaders within the division.
 
Clinical or basic research is expected and facilitated through a faculty advisor and three months of protected, non-clinical time.   These efforts should result in presentations at national meetings such as the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology.
