Columbia University/NYPH Medical Center Columbia University

The Columbia Regional Anesthesia Fellowship offers a one-year program with a diverse clinical experience. Fellowship training is designed to advance the candidate beyond technical proficiency with ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks (with/without a nerve stimulator) and continuous catheters, to become experts in perioperative pain management as well as in the management of complex patient populations. Fellows receive exposure to a variety of techniques for orthopedic, vascular, breast and abdominal surgery. Currently 2000 peripheral nerve blocks and 400 peripheral nerve catheters are performed annually with anticipated continued growth. Approximately 60-80% of the time will be spent in the clinical arena with the remainder being protected research and administrative time. Fellows are expected to participate in research as well as actively contribute in a weekly regional anesthesia journal club. The majority of clinical time is spent in a dedicated 4-bed monitored holding area performing and teaching regional anesthesia techniques to the anesthesia residents. Additional teaching responsibility includes instruction to medical students in the anatomy lab. The opportunity also exists to round with the Acute Pain Service.

Fellows have no attending or call responsibilities. There are voluntary moonlighting opportunities if desired.
