Department and faculty
The Nemours Anesthesiology Department is a highly integrated, collaborative group of pediatric anesthesiologists. All Nemours faculty hold academic appointments in College of Medicine, Mayo Clinic.
Each faculty member is committed to patient care, education, research and inquiry in his or her daily practice. All faculty members actively participate in resident training with predominately one-on-one supervision. A considerable number of the faculty conduct clinical research, teach postgraduate and continuing education programs throughout the U.S., and are leaders in anesthesia-related societies and communities.
The Department of Anesthesiology performs over 14,000 cases annually, of which residents participate in approximately 5,000. The Nemours Children's Clinic in Jacksonville partners with Wolfson Children's Hospital, which is part of the Baptist Health care system.
Wolfson Children's Hospital is a modern, advanced pediatric facility that provides services in pediatric subspecialty areas, including cardiothoracic, neurosurgical, general pediatric, orthopedic, plastic, ENT, ophthalmology and urology. All aspects of pediatric surgical and anesthesia care are part of the pediatric anesthesia practice. Nemours anesthesia faculty members also provide care to pediatric pain patients in an acute and chronic setting. Hospitalized pediatric patients with acute pain or regional catheters in place are covered by the pediatric pain service, which is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
In addition, anesthesia team members provide services at several "outfield" locations, including the outpatient surgery center, catheterization lab and radiology suites that include computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and nuclear medicine.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Nemours faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. You will have direct access to these professionals throughout your training.
You will be assigned a faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Your adviser also will serve as a contact point, introducing you and your family to Jacksonville, Mayo Clinic, Nemours Children's Clinic and Wolfson Children's Hospital.
