The fellow and residents receive daily informal lectures from staff on a wide variety of topics often based on current cases they are following on L&D. As the year progresses the fellow will provide lectures both informal and formal to the residents.
Bi-monthly organized lectures will be given by one of the fellowship trained staff. These lectures are specifically focused on fellowship level topics and will be held on the fellows academic days as to not interfere with clinical time.
The Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology has developed a specific web based lecture series for OB anesthesia fellows. These lectures are given by internationally recognized experts in OB anesthesia. The fellow will view these each month with at least one faculty with the goal of facilitating discussions between fellow and faculty on interesting topics.
Every other month a journal club will be held at either a local favorite restaurant or one of the faculty’s homes. The fellow along with his/her research mentor will select the article. The fellow will present the article and lead a group discussion.
The fellow has the opportunity to participate in several simulations throughout the year. There are 8 planned multidisciplinary simulations per year involving anesthesia, OBGYN, NICU and nursing. One or two times a year there is a multidisciplinary simulation course held at our high fidelity simulation center. These two day courses allow the fellow to improve their leadership and communication skills as well as enhance the relationships across specialties.
