Regional Anesthesia

In the regional anesthesia rotation, residents develop the skills and knowledge base necessary to perform basic regional anesthetic techniques for surgery. Each resident is instructed in the use of both ultrasound-guided and landmark-guided techniques for peripheral nerve blockade. Our dedicated and knowledgeable regional anesthesia staff members, who have won over 40% of our departments teaching awards over the past several years, work closely with residents throughout the rotation. By the end of this rotation, residents are able to utilize regional anesthesia as a tool for both intraoperative anesthesia and postoperative analgesia.

The regional rotation takes place in the CA-2 year and allows the resident 2 weeks out of the OR, placing blocks for cases across all of the operating rooms.

We also offer a comprehensive regional and acute pain management training program. You can check it out here.
