Fellowship in Perioperative Administration
View our brochure
The goal of the fellowship is to train board-eligible/board-certified anesthesiologists in the burgeoning field of perioperative administration. Fellows will receive formal, hands on training in the management of all aspects of the perioperative environment and will gain knowledge of the relationship of those environments within a larger healthcare system.
Fellows will interact with and learn from a variety of clinical and hospital leaders, including clinicians and administrators in the Perioperative Services Administration, the Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care, and Pain Medicine, and other key hospital administrators. Additionally, the fellows will work with faculty from Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management.
The fellowship program has three primary areas of focus: management and leadership; finance; and systems operations. The broad-based, comprehensive curriculum provides specific emphases on key perioperative challenges such as patient flow, manpower optimization, and materials management in the perioperative environment. While the focus is an understanding of these issues in quaternary hospital systems, opportunities exist for additional training in outpatient ambulatory surgery center management in the affiliated ambulatory settings.
