University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics

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.
