The Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Anesthesiology has an open integrated fellowships position in its ACGME-accredited Pediatric Pain Medicine Fellowship and Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship Program. The program is 24 months, and candidates will be eligible to sit both the ABA certification examinations pediatric anesthesiology and pain medicine at the conclusion of this dual fellowship training. Desirable candidates should have career interest in an academic position involving pediatric pain leadership, with clinical responsibilities in pediatric chronic and acute pain, pediatric anesthesiology, with potential focus in pediatric regional anesthesia and limited adult or adolescent transitional chronic pain. The fellow will become an expert at provision of pediatric anesthesiology and also in all aspects of pediatric and adult pain management, opioid and adjunctive medication management, and non-interventional and non-pharmacotherapeutic  pain management. Personalized physical and occupational therapy, acupuncture, psychological and cognitive therapies, and regional anesthesia are common treatment modalities. Adequate exposure to interventional pain modalities is provided but this is not the fellowship focus. The model for the typical pediatric pain faculty is to practice some clinical pediatric anesthesiology; trainees seeking 100% pain training and focus should not apply unless already board certified in pediatric anesthesiology (in which case a 12 month continuum will be considered)

The training exposure provides over 18 months of continuity outpatient chronic pain clinical care to children and adults. The fellow will have a didactic “home” in pediatric anesthesiology (year 1) and in pain (year 2). The pain time has approximately 7 blocks focused in adult clinical pain rotations and 5 blocks in pediatric pain.  Clinical rotations include pain and anesthesia time during both fellowship years. During pain blocks, fellows will divide their training between both adult and pediatric services and related specialties (psychiatry, PM and R)  The team includes ACGME Pain Medicine fellows/faculty, pediatric anesthesiology fellows/faculty nurse practitioners, physiatrists, psychologists, anesthesiologists, neurologists as well as strong relationships with surgeons. 

 Medical College of Wisconsin/the Childrens Hospital is a large training program located in Milwaukee Wisconsin. We encourage you to visit the website for more details. Candidates must have successfully completed an ACGME-accredited residency in Anesthesiology.  The position is for the 2018-2020 academic years.

The fellowship is divided between research, education and clinical experience obtained as a fellow in regional anesthesia and faculty supervising residents/anesthetists for a variety of surgical procedures. 

Clinical experience will be divided between the main University of Wisconsin campus (a Level I trauma center with active transplant, general surgery, breast, thoracic and cardiac programs) and a satellite center providing regional anesthesia services for a high-volume orthopedics practice. Upper and lower extremity peripheral nerve and plexus blocks, continuous catheter techniques for postoperative pain treatment, paravertebral techniques, fascial plane blocks and central neuraxial techniques (spinal, thoracic epidural and combined spinal-epidural) are extensively utilized to provide perioperative pain management.  Comprehensive multimodal perioperative pain management training is provided via experience with lidocaine and ketamine infusions.  Experience with chronic pain management may also be obtained via work with fellowship trained chronic pain Anesthesiologists. 

 Clinical experience is supplemented with training in a high-fidelity simulation center, journal club and cadaver lab experience.  Efforts are made to augment clinical training with research and presentation experience.

 This fellowship is located in Madison, WI - a vibrant, collegiate city surrounded by five lakes and miles of biking/hiking trails located in southeastern Wisconsin.  Madison is an open and diverse community and is consistently ranked highly on a number of “Best City for X” rankings.
