West Virginia University’s Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Medicine fellowship is a 1 year ACGME-accredited fellowship that accepts 1 fellow per year. The West Virginia University Health System, the state’s largest health system, is comprised of ten hospitals – its flagship hospital and academic medical center, Ruby Memorial Hospital is in Morgantown. Ruby Memorial Hospital is a tertiary referral and level 1 trauma center, the regional anesthesia and acute pain medicine service benefits from exposure to a highly diverse case-mix. The regional anesthesia and acute pain medicine service currently performs approximately 2,500 single injection and continuous peripheral nerve blocks annually. There are multiple faculty members on the regional anesthesia and acute pain medicine service with substantial regional anesthesia experience and/or fellowship training.

The regional anesthesia and acute pain medicine service provides services to the main hospital operating rooms, the outpatient surgical center within the main hospital, and all inpatient units within Ruby Memorial Hospital. Fellows perform a variety of peripheral and neuraxial blocks for a diverse array of clinical services under the supervision of a regional anesthesia faculty. This focus on regional anesthesia and acute pain medicine serves to provide great educational and training opportunities that will prepare fellows to become subspecialty-trained anesthesiologists.
