We are a group of around 40 dual-trained pediatric intensive care anesthesiologists from around the country. The intent of the group is to foster collaboration and networking, and create a platform for inter-institutional research that intersects both sub-specialty domains. We are also exploring advocacy efforts with the respective leadership of ABA and ABP to facilitate more streamlined training options for those wishing to pursue this career pathway. We have a manuscript in review currently that highlights the demographics of the current US cohort of dual-trained physicians and factors associated with attrition. These findings were presented in abstract format at the SPA-AAP Pediatric Anesthesiology 2019 Meeting in Houston.
