The ACGME-accredited Fellowship in Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine incorporates 12 months of extensive clinical expertise in both peripheral and neuraxial blocks, as well as the management of acute pain conditions.  Trainees will become adept at a wide range of single shot and continuous techniques. Fellows develop independence over a period of months before assuming a broader role supervising junior residents. Rotations include the inpatient regional service, ambulatory orthopedic regional service, regional service at NYPH Columbia, inpatient acute pain service, inpatient chronic pain service, orthopedic trauma operating room, and an optional elective at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Rotations and clinical exposure are in compliance with ACGME recommendations for training in Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine. 

Our Regional Anesthesia Service performs over 3000 regional procedures per year, both inside and outside of the operating rooms. All of our regional faculty members have extensive clinical experience or have completed fellowship training in Regional Anesthesia or Pain Management. During their training our fellows can expect to gain expertise in the following procedures:

  • Upper extremity blocks and catheters: Interscalene, supraclavicular, infraclavicular, costoclavicular, axillary
  • Lower extremity blocks and catheters: Femoral, lateral femoral cutaneous, sciatic, popliteal, saphenous, iPACK
  • Truncal blocks: Lumbar plexus, paravertebral, TAP, rectus sheath, quadratus lumborum, PECs, serratus anterior, erector spinae, TTMP
  • Ultrasound and nerve stimulator techniques
  • Neuraxial blocks, including thoracic epidurals
  • Acute pain management procedures
  • Management of acute pain in the chronic pain patient

Didactics

In addition to a formal lecture series and web-based curriculum, fellows participate in simulation training, OSCE’s, multidisciplinary conferences and our monthly journal club and difficult case conference.  We offer both formal and informal sessions for oral board exam preparation.  Fellows are required to present at our CME-accredited Grand Rounds.

Scholarship

Fellows are required to participate in scholarly activities, which may include clinical research projects, presentations at national meetings, Grand Rounds presentations, or teaching initiatives with the residents and medical students.

Medical Student Teaching
Fellows are invited to participate in medical student teaching and outreach.  Our division holds quarterly ultrasound anatomy workshops for interested medical students.  Our goal is to introduce Anesthesiology early in the preclinical years in a way that provides the students with useful information and clinical correlates to their studies.
