Onco-Anesthesiology Fellowship

Anesthesiology team members at Moffitt

Our mission is to improve the perioperative care of the patient with cancer and to advance education and research in the field of onco-anesthesiology.

Program Overview

The Onco-Anesthesiology Fellowship Program aims to provide unique and advanced training to anesthesiologists in the perioperative care of patients undergoing cancer-related diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in a variety of clinical settings. Participants will obtain in-depth knowledge of cancer therapies, both surgical and nonsurgical, and their impact on anesthetic management. The fellowship program is designed to allow for the development of expertise in clinical care delivery, education, and research in onco-anesthesiology. The graduating fellow will be well suited to lead future advancements in these areas. 

Program Description

This one-year program is comprised of 10 months of customized clinical rotations in onco-anesthesiology, including in the operating room, non-operating room anesthesia (NORA) sites, intensive care unit and pre-anesthesia testing clinic, and 2 months of elective experience involving either clinical or research rotations or both. Scheduled clinical rotations will be offered in anesthesiology for general surgical oncology, head and neck oncology/difficult airway, neurosurgical oncology, acute and chronic pain management, and perioperative and critical care medicine. Clinical research opportunities will be available and participation is strongly encouraged during the fellowship. In addition to the scheduled rotations, additional elective opportunities will be available in quality and patient safety, cardio-oncology (including transthoracic echocardiography) and advanced research.  

Educational activities include journal club, grand rounds, M&M, multicenter journal club, Tumor Board, and the Moffitt GME Core Lecture Series.
