The University of Kansas Medical Center

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.
