ACGME & Program Requirements
  • The ACGME requires 2 months of obstetric anesthesia.
  • You must provide care for 40 patients undergoing vaginal delivery and 20 patients undergoing caesarian section.
    • Tip: You won’t always know if a patient will have a successful vaginal delivery when you place an epidural, but log each of these as vaginal deliveries if that is the expectation.
