The one-month Regional Anesthesia rotation provides residents with intensive exposure to a variety of regional anesthetic techniques, including ambulatory surgical procedures. Also resident assist at making decisions related to acute pain medicine, drug selections, catheter management and follow up for our ambulatory patients. Residents gain proficiency acute pain medicine and in many peripheral nerve block techniques, such as:
- neuraxial anesthetics
- inter scalene
- supraclavicular and infraclavicular approach
- adductor canal
Residents are supervised and instructed by faculty members with extensive expertise in regional anesthesia.
In addition to this rotation, the division sponsors regular Regional Anesthesia Workshops (12/year), using cadaver dissections, live and inanimate models, daily short lectures, didactics and other methods to teach regional anesthesia techniques in an optimal educational environment. Residents are expected to participate at the journal club planned during the rotation.
