Frank H Netter MD School of Medicine

The Frank H Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University is offering a one-year Fellowship in Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Management. Our program is designed to provide the trainees with the expertise to effectively select and implement various regional and non-opioid options for enhanced recovery, facilitate OR flow, and improve perioperative management. The Fellows will be exposed to and expected to perform as many ultrasound-guided regional blocks as possible, to achieve procedural expertise by completion of their training.

Our faculty consists of a dedicated group of nationally recognized educators, speakers, and fellowship-trained experts. All our peripheral nerve block procedures are performed under ultrasound guidance; we do not provide any training with nerve stimulation. Our two primary hospitals, St Vincent’s Medical Center and Midstate Hospital, are home to the Connecticut Orthopedic Institute, where we perform over 6000 peripheral and neuraxial blocks annually. Outside of the orthopedic service line, we perform another 4000 truncal and chest wall blocks in our hospitals per year.  Our secondary sites are private ambulatory surgery centers which focus on speed and efficiency. During their training, the Fellows will learn multimodal analgesia, management of complex pain patients, coordination of care with chronic pain providers, and the billing aspects of regional anesthesia. Upon completion of the program, fellows should be fully prepared for clinical careers with a focus in ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia.

The position is 75% fellowship and 25% faculty. Fellows will be expected to complete at least one academic project and submit it to a national meeting for presentation. No call or weekends are required, but there are opportunities for extra work for additional compensation.

This program uses the common application. Submit the completed application directly to the individual Fellowship Program.
