Welcome Letter

Welcome!

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to our first Pediatric Anesthesia Fellows Bootcamp, which will be hosted at St. Louis Children’s Hospital on Saturday, February 25, 2023!

This one-day bootcamp represents a collaborative effort among fellows and experienced faculty across the nation to provide intermediate-level knowledge and skills for mid-year pediatric anesthesia fellows.

Through a combination of different stations and hands-on simulated patient scenarios, fellows will integrate content, apply knowledge, acquire skills, and reflect in a realistic and safe simulated learning environment.

With this educational endeavor, we will build confidence, face challenges, manage critical events and family interactions, and learn new clinical roles to help fellows transition from their training years to independent pediatric anesthesiologists.

We hope to see you at this inaugural event in February in St. Louis!
