The fellowship is a mixture of both clinical experience and clinically oriented research. Fellows receive a broad exposure and will become proficient to numerous types of blocks. We utilize both nerve-stimulator and ultrasound-guided approaches to peripheral nerve blocks. We have a strong emphasis on continuous catheter infusions and a sizable home infusion patient population following ambulatory surgery. The fellows are instrumental in the education and overseeing of anesthesiology residents during their regional rotation. The goals and objectives of a regional anesthesia fellowship are to train a fellow in techniques of regional anesthesia. It is anticipated that any fellow completing our program would be in high demand for an academic appointment at any teaching institution and if they so choose, highly recruited in the private sector as others are recognizing the important role of regional anesthesia.
