Westchester Medical Center/New York Medical College- ACGME Accredited

Westchester Medical Center/New York Medical College is the major tertiary referral center and level one trauma hospital for the beautiful Hudson Valley, located half an hour north of New York City. Westchester Medical Center (WMC) offers a busy nerve block schedule with a daily dedicated regional anesthesiologist. We designed our Regional Anesthesia Fellowship to provide fellows with advanced clinical, technical, and research training in the field of regional anesthesia and acute pain medicine. Under the leadership of the regional anesthesia and acute pain management division, the Department of Anesthesiology at WMC has developed into a thriving dynamic institution that performs regional anesthesia on a diverse population, including orthopedic, general surgery, gynecologic, organ transplant, thoracic, vascular, trauma, and pediatric cases. Our various blocks include neuraxial, truncal, and peripheral extremity nerve blocks. In addition to the hands-on training of regional anesthesia, fellows will be expected to manage perioperative pain on inpatients as an emerging acute pain specialist. Fellows will have protected research time and are expected to initiate and complete at least one major academic project during their fellowship as well as present at a national conference.

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