Program Description

Regional Anesthesiology & Acute Pain Medicine fellowship training is concentrated on the perioperative management of patients receiving neuraxial or peripheral neural blockade for anesthesia or analgesia and providing analgesic regimens for post-operative patients. The program is designed to develop a base of expertise in the practice and theory of regional anesthesia, the organization of an acute pain consultant service, and the acquisition of operating room management skills as they relate to regional anesthesia. In addition, the fellow is expected to enhance teaching abilities and comprehension and incorporate practice guidelines and research based clinical decision making into his or her practice.

Acute Pain Management is inherently involved with regional anesthesia in the perioperative arena. Fellows will acquire expertise in management of patients with acute pain of both surgical and non-surgical etiologies. Independent decision making and management of a patient census while educating residents affords the fellow the opportunity to formalize his or her skills as an expert.
