“I began my fellowship a few weeks ago with nervous enthusiasm.  I was thrilled to be working with such renowned faculty and at such a celebrated institution.  One of the first cases I was involved in happened to be a patient that had had radiation to the chest and his previous bypass and valve replacement was aborted due to inability to cannulate for bypass.  The attending described in detail how the surgeons would attempt to cannulate the iliac artery, which is vitally important to understand as a cardiac anesthesiologist.  Another early case, a right anomalous coronary artery, the attending again thoroughly explained how the surgeons would unroof the anomalous coronary artery to allow increased blood flow.  It is not only crucial to learn what we do, but also what the cardiac surgeons are doing ,since the success of the operation depends on everyone being on the same page. The faculty has been extremely welcoming along with being dedicated to teaching.   The echocardiography lectures have been interactive and informative.  Through these early experiences, I felt reassured that I had made the right decision to come to Hopkins to train.  I am looking  forward to continuing my education and being mentored by the superb faculty.”
