NYU Langone Health (ACGME Accredited)

The NYU Langone Health (NYULH) Regional Anesthesia fellowship is an ACGME-accredited one-year program intended to train physicians to safely and efficiently employ regional anesthesia techniques in their practice. Our goal is to produce excellent clinicians with superior technical skills, an understanding of the current state of knowledge, and the ability to become future teachers, investigators, and leaders in the field.

Clinical training will primarily occur at the NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital, a leading center for the treatment of orthopedic disease. There, the fellow, under the guidance of our diverse and dynamic staff, will gain proficiency in providing surgical anesthesia and postoperative analgesia for orthopedic procedures. Fellows will also rotate at our ambulatory orthopedic surgical center, as well as at the NYULH flagship hospital, Tisch Hospital, allowing fellows the opportunity to apply regional anesthesiology to the gamut of surgical specialties, e.g., truncal blocks. NYU Hospital - Brooklyn is a Level 1 Trauma Center.

Didactics include a monthly lecture series on important topics in regional anesthesia, as well as a CME accredited Grand Rounds/Case Conference. Monthly journal clubs are held, and the fellow will have the opportunity to present and supervise the presentations of junior residents.

Involvement in research is strongly encouraged and fellows will have time to either begin an original project under the supervision of a staff anesthesiologist or to participate in an ongoing project. Fellows are also encouraged to participate in academic endeavors, such as book chapters or poster presentations, and may attend one conference of their choice.

Completion of an Accredited Anesthesiology Residency is required.
Must be eligible to hold a New York State Medical License or Limited Permit.  

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