The Regional Anesthesiology Fellowship Program consists of 12 months of subspecialty training for qualified physicians who have completed an accredited anesthesiology residency. Preference is given to mature individuals with significant experience in regional anesthesia who are interested in becoming an “expert” in acute pain and regional anesthesia. Fellowship training is not only concerned with the development of expertise in the practice and theory of regional anesthesiology and acute pain management techniques, but also the understanding of the related physiology and pharmacology, patient outcomes, and financial related issues. The Regional Anesthesiology/Acute Pain Medicine Division faculty select fellows on the basis of written applications, academic records, documented performance, and interviews. Further information is available upon request.
