The regional anesthesia fellowship at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in Richmond, VA is designed to provide a well-rounded experience through clinical care, education, research, and professional development. Fellows gain experience in a wide range of skills associated with regional anesthesiology utilizing various techniques to perform single shot and catheter blocks. Each fellow will personally perform and supervise residents in over 1500 blocks during the fellowship year, including upper and lower extremity catheters as well as paravertebral and truncal blocks. The fellows are intimately involved with the inpatient pain consult service, which allows them to evaluate and treat patients with challenging medical and surgical conditions. In addition, fellows spend an average of two days per week as an attending anesthesiologist doing a mix of general operating room cases. This allows the fellow to maintain their clinical anesthesiology skills and make supplemental income. Each fellow receives a stipend in professional funds for conferences, books, and additional academic endeavors. Lastly, the regional anesthesia fellowship prepares trainees to evaluate pertinent literature, develop and conduct original clinical or basic science research projects, and present such work at national and international academic meetings. To enhance the academic mission, the fellows have dedicated time to focus on ongoing research opportunities.

VCU offers a culture where surgeons are very supportive of using regional anesthesia techniques to improve the patient experience. The acute pain division has a strong presence within the hospital administration. The department’s commitment to pain management has created an unparalleled opportunity for its regional fellows to learn, improve, and contribute to ongoing initiatives.
