The University of Alabama at Birmingham

The Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Medicine (RAAPM) fellowship program consists of twelve months of post-graduate training after successful completion of an accredited residency program in Anesthesiology. The RAAPM fellowship is tied to a part-time faculty position in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB).

The RAAPM program at UAB specializes in peri-operative management of patients receiving peripheral nerve or neuraxial blockade for anesthesia and/or acute post-operative analgesia. Our primary goal is to provide high quality patient care and effective management of acute pain for patients undergoing surgery. Our program provides acute pain management for patients undergoing orthopedic, pediatrics, trauma, thoracic, vascular, plastic and general surgery. The program performs approximately 5,000 peripheral nerve blocks and 1,000 neuraxial blocks for acute post-operative pain treatment each year.

Fellowship training is designed to develop expertise in the practice and theory of regional anesthesia and acute pain management techniques. The program emphasizes pre-operative assessment, patient selection, patient education and in-depth understanding of physiology and pharmacology in the provision of patient care. Fellowship training includes rotations in Obstetric and Inpatient Pain Service anesthesia.

Our comprehensive didactic program includes departmental grand rounds, journal club, and weekly lecture series. We also host an annual Ultrasound Guided Regional Anesthesia workshop as an integrated part of our department’s annual Anesthesiology Review Course. Fellow participation in clinical research and presentation at national/regional meetings are strongly encouraged.
