Welcome to the UTMB Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology Fellowship Website!

We have been training Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology fellows since 1995 and have been ACGME-accredited since 2007. We accept one fellow for each academic year. Our training emphasis is to produce excellent clinicians with a substantial expertise in perioperative echocardiography.


Application Policy and Procedure

Applications for the next academic year will be accepted until April 30 of the previous year (i.e. applications for July, 2015 - June, 2016 will be open until April 30, 2014). We use the San Francisco Match for our program (see link below in useful websites).
For consideration, applicants must have or be scheduled to graduate in good-standing from an ACGME-accredited anesthesiology residency program before the start of fellowship matriculation.
