About the Program


The Department of Anesthesiology offers two regional anesthesiology and acute pain medicine fellowships, which provide participants with a well-rounded, one-year clinical, research and teaching experience focused on the perioperative care of surgical patients. Our hospitals are located in Columbus, Ohio, with most rotations (including core months) being completed at University Hospital East. The fellowship has an emphasis on regional anesthesia for orthopaedic surgery during the core months of training, including refining skills for single-shot peripheral nerve and neuraxial blocks, as well as extensive training in perineurial catheter placement and management techniques.

  • Extensive training in the use of ultrasound-guidance for peripheral and neuraxial blocks, perineural catheters and vascular access procedures
  • Management of inpatient and outpatient perineurial catheter services
  • Management of acute pain conditions and employment of treatment modalities outside the scope of regional anesthesia
  • Additional training in regional anesthetic techniques for general, ophthalmology, thoracic and pediatric surgical cases
  • Learning the fundamentals and billing practices required for establishment and maintenance of a regional anesthesia service following completion of the fellowship

Research Exposure

  • Initiation and/or completion of at least one institutional review board-approved clinical research protocol during the training period
  • Presentation at one departmental grand rounds or national conference during the training period
  • Presentation at quarterly divisional journal clubs
  • Attendance at one (or two) national regional anesthesiology conference(s) during the training period
  • Anatomical dissection of cadaver specimens provided to the department during the training period

Teaching Exposure
