Perioperative Medicine Fellowship

Perioperative Medicine Fellowship

The surgical landscape is evolving, increasingly leaning upon expert evaluation and optimization for patients at high risk for poor outcomes. These patients account for more than 30% of ICU admissions, 70% of post-operative deaths, and 90% of the care provided during hospitalization.

The UPMC Perioperative Medicine Fellowship is a 12-month, multidisciplinary, team-based training program focusing on both outpatient and inpatient perioperative management of these high-risk patients and their families. UPMC’s world-class surgical staff relies on our Center for Perioperative Care (CPC) team of anesthesiologists to help reduce hospital length of stay, hospital-acquired conditions, and readmission rates, translating into better quality care, higher patient satisfaction, and cost savings.

With a robust inpatient, outpatient, and multi-site training experience, the Perioperative Medicine Fellowship prepares anesthesiologists with the tools and experience for a dynamic and value-based healthcare system.

Our Perioperative Medicine Fellowship is also uniquely designed to allow additional training in medical innovation as a part of the UPMC Anesthesiology Innovation Pathway.
