The Division of Pediatric Anesthesiology includes a variety of UF faculty physicians who share a common interest and commitment to the perioperative and sedation care of infants and children.

In addition to post-residency fellowship training in pediatric anesthesia, several faculty members have additional training and expertise in advanced pediatric cardiac anesthesia, pediatric pain medicine, and critical care.

Anesthesia residents from the University of Florida (Gainesville) anesthesiology residency training program and a number of certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) and certified anesthesiologist assistants (C-AA) complement the pediatric anesthesia team.
