The Fellowship in Regional Anesthesia at Tulane University is a 12-month program that provides the opportunity to gain clinical expertise in a wide range of peripheral and neuraxial blocks. There is a focus on ultrasound-guided techniques. The Departments of Sports Medicine and Orthopedics are among the busiest clinical services provided at Tulane, and we provide inpatient and outpatient continuous peripheral nerve blocks for a majority of those surgical patients. Our Regional Fellows perform an average of over 400 procedures (mostly continuous catheters), and supervise residents for many more. There is an emphasis on clinical experience and teaching, as well as an expectation to engage in scholarly activities and research.

The fellowship is a non-ACGME accredited program, thus allowing the fellow to be given a Tulane University School of Medicine academic appointment at the Instructor level. Fellows spend 50% of their time performing procedures and supervising residents in the block area (with no concurrent clinical responsibilities), and the other 50% of their time is spent as an Anesthesiology faculty member, supervising CRNAs and/or residents in a wide variety of surgical cases.

Application Due Date: December 31st
