Love kids: There are several ways to go into pediatric anesthesia. One of my partners was a pediatrician before he went into anesthesia, another did a fellowship in pediatric anesthesia. I did a fellowship in neuroanesthesia and primarily concentrated on pediatric patients. Once you get out you have to find a practice that will let you concentrate on a pediatric practice.
