Columbia University Medical Center


Our goal is to train the future leaders of the subspecialty of Obstetric anesthesia and Anesthesiology. One and two-year Fellowships are available which include advanced clinical training and clinical or laboratory research experience, and the opportunity to initiate and/or participate in the research endeavors of our Division, Department and Medical Center. More extensive and/or intensive basic science/laboratory training can be combined with the clinical Fellowship on an individually-designed basis, especially with the two-year option. In addition, there is the possibility of combining the clinical Fellowship with coursework in epidemiology, biostatistics and/or clinical study design at the Columbia University School of Public Health.


Most Fellows spend approximately half their time in clinical work, and the other half in academic pursuits (teaching, research, some administrative experience). Fellows are assigned some night calls each month, exclusively in the Labor and Delivery Suite (no OR call).


Our Division is responsible for anesthesia/analgesia care at two L&D suites, the main 168th campus site, with approximately 4,500, mostly high-risk deliveries, and the lower-risk Allen Pavilion site at 218th St and Broadway, with 2,400 deliveries. Fellows will spend almost all of their time at the main campus site.
