Anesthesiology Fellowship


Children’s National Health System’s Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship is affiliated with George Washington University in Washington, DC. As program director, Ira Todd Cohen, MD, M.Ed., leads a team of educators, including Nina Deutsch, MD (Associate Director of Education) and Srijaya Reddy, MD, MBA (Assistant Director of Education). Their mission is to provide the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to be an outstanding pediatric anesthesiologist.

The Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship is a one-year fellowship and includes training in all subspecialties: cardiac anesthesiology, neuroanesthesia, orthopedic anesthesia with a focus on regional anesthesia techniques, neonatal anesthesia, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Emergency Room Trauma, general surgery, ENT, MRI, and sedation for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

The Division of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine at Children’s National provides comprehensive clinical anesthesia services for infants and children undergoing a full range of pediatric surgical procedures. A complete spectrum of surgical anesthesia services is provided, including anesthesia for pediatric congenital heart disease, heart transplantation, craniofacial reconstruction, neurosurgery, reconstruction of the larynx and trachea, and complex pediatric surgery. As trainees in the program, fellows actively participate and learn from these cases.

The nine Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship positions will be filled through the NRMP Match.
