The Duke Anesthesiology fellowships offer a rich clinical exposure to high complexity cases with oversight from world-class faculty. Within these fellowships is a cohesive community that comes together each week for a professional seminar on topics designed to assist fellows in developing skills as “thinkers and leaders” in their future careers. Some of the topics covered include: ethics in the perioperative and critical care environment, abstract writing for a national meeting emerging science and improving clinical practice. There is also a structured Quality Assurance and Patient Safety initiative with fellows involved in group projects with final presentation to the department.

Duke Anesthesiology appreciates the significance of exposing fellows to research during their training period. Each fellow is assigned a faculty mentor and identifies a specific project to pursue during their fellowship. At the three-month mark of their fellowship, ideas are presented by the fellows to the entire department. Fellows are encouraged to present their final project at national/international/regional conferences and also at the department’s annual Academic Evening, where a guest faculty judges presentations.
Upon completion of a fellowship at Duke Anesthesiology, our impression is that graduates have enjoyed tremendous success in their professional lives. Our alumni are highly sought after in both private practice and academic medicine, and often assume leadership positions. Our department takes great pride in our fellows, seeing these individuals as a reflection of the quality of our programs and part of Duke University School of Medicine’s tradition of excellence.
