In partnership with The University of Tennessee Knoxville Haslam College of Business, the Department of Anesthesiology offers a unique experience both clinically and educationally with the Fellowship in Perioperative Medicine. The program is 18 months in duration, starting in July with completion in December of the following year. During the 18-month fellowship, the physician will practice clinically in addition to being enrolled in the Physician Executive MBA (PEMBA) program, which is of one-year duration (January-December). The PEMBA program is a preeminent, nationally ranked degree program exclusively for physicians seeking leadership, management, and business skills. A Physician Executive MBA degree is awarded upon program completion as well as participation in graduation ceremonies. The fellowship is supplemented with a wide array of clinical enrichment activities and consultations to cater to the fellow's personal and professional interests and the program curriculum is individually customized to meet these expectations. The result is a dynamic curriculum with a unique blend of clinical, educational, and enrichment experiences. The program includes a Junior Faculty Level salary with benefits, no call, weekend, or night clinical work, and the option for Perioperative TEE Basic Certification. Furthermore, the fellowship has built-in protected Non-Clinical Time (NCT) to account for the PEMBA program requirements and the various clinical enrichment activities. Eight weeks paid time off is included.
