Division of Pediatric Anesthesia

Welcome to the Division of Pediatric Anesthesia and Pain Medicine of the
University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) located at
Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH). The anesthesiologists,
certified registered nurse anesthetists, and staff are dedicated to providing
care, love, and hope to their patients throughout the perioperative period.

The vast majority of our physician faculty have completed post-residency
fellowship training in pediatric anesthesia and are all either board certified
in anesthesiology by the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) or
currently enrolled in the ABA examination process. In addition, many
also have further training in pediatrics, pediatric critical care, pediatric
cardiac anesthesia or pain medicine.  Three members of our faculty are
non-pediatric trained (but core specialty board-certified) anesthesiologists
who provide full-time support to the Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH)
Burn Center, where the majority of the patients are adults.  The
anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists provide clinical care at a wide
variety of locations around the ACH campus, including the main
operating room suite, cardiovascular operating rooms, radiology
department, and burn center, among others. The faculty and staff
also provide both acute and chronic pain services. All ACH-based
anesthesiologists are physician faculty members of UAMS.

The Division of Pediatric Anesthesia and Pain Medicine works with UAMS to
provide excellent anesthesiology residency training experiences as part of
the core anesthesiology residency program, and also provide a pediatric
anesthesia fellowship program that is accredited by the Accreditation
Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The fellowship
program is for graduate residents who seek to obtain additional training
and expertise in pediatric anesthesia. The division also provides
educational opportunities for a variety of students and residents
from other training programs.
