Welcome to the Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellowship Program in the department of anesthesiology at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville. This is a one-year program provides fellows not only the best possible education in the science of obstetric anesthesiology, but to train excellent professionals with high ethical standards and values. The department is well-equipped to deliver quality care and education.

Fellows are given opportunities to master clinical techniques unique to the practice of obstetrical anesthesiology. Our obstetric unit is comprised of a significant high-risk population of parturients with obstetric disorders as well as cardiovascular, pulmonary, neurological and endocrine disorders.

In addition, our fellows are actively engaged in the department’s teaching and research, thereby receiving a well-rounded experience while contributing to advancing the mission of the department and the institution.

In addition to the outstanding clinical training, our fellows enjoy the many amenities of Jacksonville coastal living.

Thank you for your interest in our fellowship program and feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
