We are seeking a motivated and dedicated individual to join the Department of Anesthesia as a regional anesthesia & acute pain fellow. Our fellowship offers the opportunity to develop skills in peripheral and central neural blockade in the context of modern, integrated multimodal pain management, working and learning in a supportive and well-equipped environment. The fellow will be exposed to single-shot blocks, indwelling catheter techniques, ultrasound and traditional approaches. Our regional anesthesia & acute pain fellowship offers you many opportunities to develop skills in clinical care, judgment, teaching and research.

The successful candidate will be based primarily in the Block Room, where more than 2500 regional anesthesia procedures are done per year,  at the Halifax Infirmary site of the QEII Health Sciences Centre, but will also have the opportunity to work with the Acute Pain Service and the Chronic Pain Service at the Victoria General site.  In addition to spending two out of five days per week in the Block Room, the fellow will provide anesthesia care in such related areas as orthopedic, plastic and vascular surgery.  The program allocates one day per week non-clinical time and provides mentors for clinical, education and research goals and projects. The fellow will actively participate in departmental teaching activities and will be encouraged to attend academic conferences to further develop skills.
