New Alternate Entry Pathway for Fellowship (AEP-F)

UPDATE: Applications are under review effective July 1, 2023. Submissions are accepted throughout the year. 

The new AEP-F program provides a subspecialty certification pathway for outstanding internationally trained medical graduates certified by the ABA through the Alternate Entry Pathway and practicing in the United States. The AEP-F program offers subspecialty certification for the following subspecialties:

  • Adult Cardiac Anesthesiology
  • Critical Care Medicine
  • Pediatric Anesthesiology
  • Pain Medicine

Anesthesiology departments enrolling an international medical graduate in the AEP program must have an anesthesiology residency or fellowship training program with “continued full” ACGME accreditation status.  Those individuals who participate in the AEP-F will not count toward the maximum of four individuals participating in the AEP.
