Cardiothoracic Anesthesia Fellowship
Massachusetts General Hospital is one of the first hospitals to offer formal training in cardiac anesthesia. In 1971, William Less, a graduate of the University of Rochester Medical School, was the first person to spend one year training specifically in cardiac anesthesia. Since then, nearly 200 fellows have trained in cardiac anesthesia at the MGH. Many have gone on to full professorships and chairperson positions including Edward Lowenstein, M.D. (Harvard Medical School), Greg Koski, M.D.(Harvard Medical School), Albert Cheung, M.D. (University of Pennsylvania Health Care System), Jerrold Levy, M.D. (Emory University) and many others.
In 2007, the Mass General Adult Cardiac Anesthesia Fellowship was one of the first programs in the country to achieve certification by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Our program is accredited for five positions in Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology.
Our ACGME-accredited fellowship allows the MGH Department of Anesthesia to continue to its three-pronged mission of top level clinical care, cutting edge research, and top notch medical education.
