Application Information

Fellows are selected through the Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology Fellowship Match using the SF Match service. The Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists sponsors the matching process and is responsible for enforcement of the applicable rules.

The SF match takes place in June and will be used to process all applicants who want to start their fellowship training in July of the following year. Applicants are responsible for ensuring they meet all prerequisites for eligibility prior to registering for the match. There is a $100 non-refundable applicant registration fee that covers registration and matching.

Applications must be submitted and received between Oct. 1 and March 31, and interviews are held from March 15 through May 15.
