Physicians applying for a fellowship program in regional anesthesiology/acute pain medicine must be currently enrolled in, or have completed, an accredited anesthesiology residency program. Each individual program may have additional requirements such as medical licensing. The information published here has been supplied by the individual institutions. Please check back frequently for updates. Programs with an asterisk behind the title indicate they are part of the SF Match Program. 



The fellowship at the University of Kansas Medical Center is a combination of invaluable clinical experience, teaching and research opportunities.  Our hospital is a tertiary medical center, Level 1 Trauma Center and the largest hospital in the Kansas City metropolitan area.  We have very busy regional anesthesia and acute pain services with a diverse patient population. 

Our fellows will become experts in the placement and management of a wide variety of peripheral nerve blocks, continuous nerve block catheters and thoracic epidurals.  They gain experience with the management of complex patients with acute pain through regional and neuraxial techniques as well as multimodal analgesia including low-dose ketamine and lidocaine infusions.  Our fellows also become autonomous and learn how to lead regional and acute pain services.  Additionally, they learn from a talented faculty pool of nationally-recognized speakers, book authors and fellowship-trained experts. Our fellows participate in a variety of educational activities including journal clubs, case conference, the ASRA Spring meeting, a cadaver lab workshop, a regional ultrasound workshop with neighboring academic institutions and a research project.  Quality improvement projects are encouraged as well.   Mock oral board and OSCE training by faculty including ABA board examiners is also offered to our fellows.  Furthermore, our fellows are instrumental in teaching residents and medical students while they rotate on the Regional and Acute Pain services.

After the first three months of fellowship, our fellows will work part-time (50%) as clinical instructor-level faculty.  This is a beneficial opportunity for our fellows to evolve into competent Consultant Anesthesiologists as well as Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Medicine specialists.  Accordingly, compensation and benefits are competitive.

The University of Kansas Multidisciplinary Pain Medicine Fellowship is an ACGME-accredited program administered within the department of anesthesiology. The vision of this program is to provide the most advanced training in interventional pain medicine in the country. Fellows will receive multi-disciplinary training with rotations through physical medicine & rehabilitation, neurology, and psychiatry during the course of the 12-month program. The program accepts two fellows a year from an American Board of Medical Specialties accredited residency program. The core faculty of the fellowship includes six board certified pain physicians whose practice primarily involves interventional treatments to patients suffering from a variety of painful conditions. Our pain center has also been named a Center of Excellence for radiofrequency ablation for spinal cancer as well as one of the leading centers in the nation for utilization of spinal cord stimulation and intrathecal pumps for select patients with intractable pain. Common treatments provided include epidural steroid injections, facet injections, spinal cord stimulation, intrathecal pump implantation, vertebral augmentation, kyphoplasty, radiofrequency ablation, neurolytic blocks, and a multitude of other interventions. Fellows will become adept at the use of fluoroscopy and ultrasound to provide accurate and effective treatments. Significant exposure to cancer pain management and advanced interventional techniques for the management of its pain is one of the cornerstones of the fellowship. Fellows will be encouraged and provided ample opportunity to participate in research and attend at least one national pain meeting during the fellowship year.

All applications to this program are to be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service® (ERAS®). Our program participates in the NRMP® for placement of pain fellow positions and will submit their rank list in compliance with its deadlines.
