AFFILIATING RESIDENCY ROTATION IN PEDIATRIC ANESTHESIA

Boston Children's Hospital offers both a core and advanced pediatric anesthesiology residency rotation.  Residents from Harvard-affiliated institutions (Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center), local hospitals (Boston University Medical Center, St. Elizabeth’s Hospital) and occasionally hospitals outside of the Boston area spend between 1-3 months at a time.

Please visit the Affiliating Residency Program Website for further details regarding the core and advanced rotations.  A separate application is required for residents interested in the advanced pediatric anesthesiology residency rotation.
