Stephanie Shin, DO

Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellow, Class of 2021

Residency: Saint Louis University 

Medical School: AT Still University – Kirksville

“Collegiality is one of the most important aspects of the work environment for me. The friendliness that I sensed during the fellowship interview is real in the anesthesia department in addition to the OR staff. I chose St. Louis Children’s Hospital because I wanted a comprehensive program that emphasizes pediatric regional and cardiothoracic anesthesia. After only a couple of months, this program has already helped me become a stronger anesthesiologist while building relationships with people who are down-to-earth and have a good sense of humor.

St. Louis has an awesome food scene and many activities (e.g., Forest Park!) for people in all stages of their lives. Having completed residency in St. Louis, this big city with a smaller city vibe has really grown on me. This fellowship program follows this pattern as I continue to meet good people and make some life-long friendships.”
