Ochsner Medical Center
The Ochsner Fellowship program in Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Medicine (RAAPM) is a one year program. Our faculty consists of nine RAAPM fellowship trained Anesthesiologists. While we do blocks for Orthopedic surgery cases, we also do them for Thoracic, General, Vascular, and Pediatric cases as well. These blocks include both peripheral and neuraxial, single shot and continuous, for inpatients and outpatients. Fellows have an opportunity to participate in all of these procedures, including our home catheter program.
Additionally, we have a Perioperative Surgical Home program for our total joint Arthroplasty patients. The team consists of one of the RAAPM staff, a resident and a nurse. With our guidance of patients through the perioperative process, we have been able to both reduce length of stay and increase patient satisfaction. The fellows actively participate in this process as well.
We have been ACGME accredited fellowship since the 2019-2020 academic year. Our fellows spend five days per week with the RAAPM team (4 clinical and 1 academic). Fellows are also expected to participate in an academic project during the fellowship year with the goal of publication and/or presentation at a national conference.
This program uses the common application. Submit the completed application directly to the individual Fellowship Program.
