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
