The Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Medicine Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania is a yearlong post-graduate training program aimed to cultivate expertise in the theory, art, and practical delivery of regional anesthesia and acute pain management. This includes hands-on training in ultrasound guided peripheral nerve blocks, management of peripheral nerve catheters, neuraxial anesthesia/analgesia and multimodal pharmacological approaches to postoperative pain management. The fellowship also incorporates a part-time clinical instructorship with the responsibility of supervising residents in the operative setting. Our fellowship is non ACGME accredited.
A particular strength of our program is the ability to customize the structure of the fellowship to the needs and interests of individual candidate. We are especially interested in candidates with a goal of pursuing an academic career and we offer the opportunity for formal education through the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatics at the Perelman School of Medicine, resulting in a certificate of clinical research during the fellowship year.
