Cardiothoracic (CT) Anesthesiology Fellowship

Our program provides broad exposure to surgical services and active areas of research.

The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine - Scott & White Cardiothoracic (CT) Anesthesiology Fellowship Program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

This one-year fellowship offers exposure to a wide range of cardiothoracic surgical services with dedicated thoracic, cardiac and vascular surgeons.

Scott & White Medical Center – Temple was the first in the state to use real-time, three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (3DTEE) in the operating rooms. This is an active area of research and serves as an excellent teaching tool for those learning sonography in addition to providing improved clinical care.

We accept two anesthesiology fellows per year.


Fellows complete roughly two months of cases working with CT faculty and spend the remainder of the fellowship supervising residents under the close direction of the faculty. This provides hands-on experience providing direct patient care as well as training in supervision and teaching.

Lectures are held weekly and are supplemented by lectures with cardiologists, surgeons and general anesthesiologists.

In addition to clinical care rotations in the cardiothoracic ORs, fellows have one month of ICU care and two weeks of perfusion technology. Electives involving cardiology, pulmonology, critical care, echocardiography and research are also available. Other rotations may be created to suit the individual needs of each fellow.
