Jessica Dominic, MD

Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellow, Class of 2021

Residency: University of Michigan

Medical School: University of Texas Medical Branch

“I made the decision to pursue pediatric anesthesiology early on during residency. When it came time to choose a fellowship program, WashU/St. Louis Children’s stood out as a strong academic program that fostered fellow education, especially in the realm of career planning and goal-driven projects. There were many programs that fit the bill when it came to case complexity and numbers, however, WashU did so in an especially collegiate and supportive environment. Now, a month into fellowship, I am impressed by the thought and effort put into ensuring that fellows are utilized for complex and unique cases. Furthermore, fellows gain strong training in the field of regional anesthesia as the techniques employed at St. Louis Children’s are some of the most innovative in pediatric perioperative pain management. WashU truly offers strong and well-rounded training in pediatric anesthesiology.

As a bonus, St. Louis is a beautiful city to call home. It has so much to offer adults, children, nature lovers, foodies, and the like. My husband and I have enjoyed exploring the various neighborhoods in the city on long bike rides and hikes. We have also had some of our favorite meals at restaurants in the area.”
