University of Maryland

The University of Maryland Regional Anesthesiology Acute Pain Medicine Fellowship is a full-time fellowship position.  Clinical experience is divided between the University of Maryland Medical Center's main campus, the Shock Trauma Center and the University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopedic Institute (UMROI).  UMROI has busy total joint and outpatient sports medicine practices.  Peripheral nerve catheters are regularly employed, giving fellows the opportunity to learn about their management in both the inpatient and ambulatory settings.  At the main campus and Shock Trauma, fellows provide all types of regional anesthetics including lumbar plexus blocks, paravertebral blocks, serratus/pec blocks and cranial nerve blocks. Fellows perform or supervise residents performing about 1500 blocks per year.

There is also ample opportunity for scholarly endeavors. Fellows receive one day per week of nonclinical time and two months of elective time. Fellows are expected to engage in a research or quality improvement project with a faculty mentor, with the goal of publication or presentation at a national meeting.  Fellows also participate in our twice annual cadaver dissection program.  Fellows participate in regular didactic lectures, journal clubs and our nationally attended annual regional anesthesia conference.  We have an experienced faculty, including nationally and internationally recognized experts in the field of Regional Anesthesia for adults and children.

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