About the program

The Department of Anesthesiology offers a unique and innovative ambulatory anesthesiology fellowship that is devoted to providing fellows with firsthand clinical exposure to the preoperative, intra-operative and post-operative anesthetic care of patients in the fast-growing field of ambulatory anesthesiology. The fellow is trained and exposed to the various business and administrative demands that go along with managing patients and staff in an ambulatory setting. Further distinguishing the fellowship is the opportunity to earn an Executive MBA from the Ohio State Fisher College of Business, providing fellows with first hand training in the executive and administrative components of ambulatory anesthesiology.

The program is a two-year commitment with 50% of the fellow’s time devoted to clinical anesthesiology as an attending managing a wide variety of mostly ambulatory anesthesia cases at several OSU outpatient facilities as well as experience in outpatient pediatric anesthesia. The other 50% of the fellow’s time is spent in non-clinical work including research, administrative meetings and the completion of a 17-month Executive MBA.
