We currently accept 4 fellows per year. The training program is 12 months long equally divided into into 4 rotations:

  1. Advanced Regional
  2. Orthopedic Regional
  3. Pediatric / Research / Intra-op / Outpatient (PRIO)
  4. Attending Anesthesiologist - Hartford Hospital & The Hospital of Central Connecticut

Advanced Regional Rotation

While on the Advanced Regional rotation, the fellow will gain vast experience in complex regional anesthesia techniques by performing peripheral nerve blocks and thoracic epidurals. Fellows will become proficient in basic and advanced blocks of the upper extremity, lower extremity, thorax, abdomen, and head and neck. This rotation allows the fellows to hone their skills by providing high volumes of blocks and provides the opportunities to explore new and different procedures. Additionally, fellows develop their organizational and leadership skills as they oversee the daily operations of the acute pain service. These responsibilities include involvement in block selection, division of labor, performance and/or supervision of blocks, acute pain service rounds & consultations, orientation of new team members, and maintenance of the quality improvement research database. This database will be an instrument for quality improvement, chronicling the fellows’ experiences, and for clinical outcomes research.

Orthopedic Regional Rotation

This rotation is unique to our fellowship and provides our trainees superb training in regional and intraoperative anesthetics for orthopedic anesthesia, a crucial skill set for any regional anesthesiologist to master.  Fellows start on the regional anesthesia + acute pain service in the morning focusing on regional anesthetics for orthopedic surgeries.  In the afternoon, they transition over to working in the orthopedic ORs as attendings half the week and protected research time the other half of the week.  This specialized rotation trains the fellows to master a crucial, desirable skill set of orthopedic anesthesia preparing them to be experts in this subspecialty.  

Pediatric / Research / Intra-op / Outpatient (PRIO) Rotation

The PRIO rotation is a valuable experience for our fellows that expands the fellows’ education. This flexible rotation will provide the fellow with some of the less common experiences in regional anesthesia training that are crucial to an overall advanced level of education. Fellows participate in the following 4 sub rotations:

  • Pediatric – Fellows gain experience in pediatric regional anesthetics at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and their affiliated outpatient surgery center. Under the training of our board certified pediatric anesthesiologists, fellows will learn numerous types of blocks and learn the techniques unique to the pediatric population..
  • Research – Fellows will have dedicated, protected time to pursue new research projects and continue on the several ongoing studies and quality improvement initiatives already in progress. They will work closely with our Clinical Research Coordinator, Dr. Aseel Walker, along with our robust research team consisting of staticians, residents, fellows, medical students, and volunteers. We have over 20 exciting ongoing research projects, mostly at our institution, as well as some multicenter trials. Click here to learn more about some of our research projects in our Department Research Section.
  • Intra-op – This rotation is a unique training opportunity in which the fellows perform a pre-op nerve block and then also provide the intraoperative anesthetic. Fellows get additional practice performing peripheral nerve blocks and get the added benefit of seeing how the blocks affect the intraoperative anesthetic. As the fellows are mostly in the orthopedic rooms for this subrotation, they will become proficient in performing spinals as well.
  • Outpatient – Fellows work at different outpatient surgery centers gaining experience in ambulatory anesthesia. They become proficient in running a busy, fast-paced outpatient surgery center, while learning peripheral nerve block techniques unique to these types of centers.

Regardless of rotation, fellows will be relieved to attend protected didactic time every Tuesday afternoon from 4-5 pm during which a variety of regional anesthesia topics will be discussed. This lecture series also incorporates journal clubs, guest speakers, as well as practical topics for the developing anesthesiologist such as “Building a Successful Personal Financial Portfolio” and “Elements of Creating and Maintaining an Acute Pain Service.”

Attending Anesthesiologist Rotation - Hartford Hospital + Hospital of Central CT

Making the transition from resident to an attending can be daunting, and this rotation helps make that shift a little smoother. Fellows on the attending rotation will get guidance from our staff of board-certified, fellowship-trained anesthesiologists who are experienced in orienting new attending anesthesiologists. IAA physicians provide an immersive and appropriate orientation to familiarize fellows to the roles and responsibilities of a new junior attending. There are plenty of people available for guidance and help as questions arise on this new journey.  We look forward to aiding with that transition.

On this rotation, fellows function as an attending anesthesiologist, focusing on orthopedic and non-orthopedic surgeries in which a regional anesthetic plays a significant role at Hartford Hospital, The Hospital of Central CT, The Bone & Joint Institute, and the HH Eye Surgery Center. Fellows perform cases by themselves and also supervise residents and CRNAs. Working in the different locations as an attending physician provides the fellows with a unique opportunity to become familiar with various surgical procedures and management of patients with regional anesthetics in an intra-operative setting. By working in efficiently run private hospitals and surgery centers, our fellows gain experience that few fellows obtain, making them highly desired by any group with a high caseload.

Locations

  • The Bone & Joint Institute – A state of the art orthopedic hospital attached to Hartford Hospital that opened in 2017. This new facility is the primary location for all types of orthopedic surgeries, including total joint replacements, trauma, minimally invasive surgeries, spine, and ambulatory procedures. This facility increases our already high volume in orthopedic surgeries. It is the only free standing orthopedic hospital in New England and it integrates advanced technologies, providing a unique learning experience for the fellows.
  • Hartford Hospital – An 868 bed regional referral center hospital with one of the highest surgical volumes in the country, performing over 36,000 surgeries a year. It is one of the largest teaching hospitals and tertiary care centers in New England with one of the region’s busiest surgery practices.
  • The Hospital of Central Connecticut – A 414 bed, acute care, tertiary, community hospital in New Britain, CT that serves Connecticut’s central region. Fellows get a unique education with a different pace than the trauma centers of Hartford Hospital and the Bone & Joint Institute as they learn blocks and work as an attending in this quaint community hospital.
  • Hartford Hospital Eye Surgery Center – A busy outpatient surgery center that performs 8,000 ophthalmic surgeries per year. This four operating room facility has between 50-70 surgeries per day, mostly before 3 pm. Many of the surgeries are performed under a retrobulbar block, placed by the anesthesiologist. Fellows periodically rotate to this facility to become proficient in regional anesthetics for ophthalmic surgery and the management of a busy outpatient practice. Training of this skill is rarely found in regional fellowships.
  • Connecticut Children’s – A pediatric hospital and surgery center where fellows get experience in pediatric regional anesthesia.  Fellows get direct training by the team of pediatric fellowship trained, board certified anesthesiologists.

Benefits & Conditions

  • Fellows will take NO CALL or work weekends or holidays during the entire year of fellowship. This helps to ensure patient continuity on the regional anesthesia & acute pain service. Fellows are welcome to moonlight by doing additional shifts for compensation, provided they do not interfere with the usual daily schedule. However, these shifts are neither mandatory nor expected.
  • In addition to the competitive salary, fellows have 4 weeks of vacation, 1 week for academic activities that can be used to attend a conference or to take board exams. They also receive $3750 for CME, fully paid CT medical license, DEA, controlled substance license, and society dues.
  • Fellows can participate in oral board review sessions with our faculty members who are official ABA Oral Board examiners, including Dr. Finkel who is an ABA board examiner.
  • Fellows will have other academic opportunities such as presenting a department grand rounds lecture, performing a research project, or attending national anesthesia conferences.

In summary, our fellowship offers an exciting opportunity to master regional and orthopedic anesthesia in a unique training environment. We have a long history of training successful experts in regional anesthesia and acute pain management who move on to fruitful careers in both private practice and academia. As the fellowship director, I look forward to the opportunity to work directly with the fellows to ensure a robust and enjoyable educational experience. If you are interested in applying for the fellowship, please contact the Fellowship Coordinator, Allison Schoolnick or the Program Director, Dr. Kevin Finkel for an application.

The Columbia Regional Anesthesia Fellowship offers a one-year program with a diverse clinical experience. Fellowship training is designed to advance the candidate beyond technical proficiency with ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks (with/without a nerve stimulator) and continuous catheters, to become experts in perioperative pain management as well as in the management of complex patient populations. Fellows receive exposure to a variety of techniques for orthopedic, vascular, breast and abdominal surgery. Currently 2000 peripheral nerve blocks and 400 peripheral nerve catheters are performed annually with anticipated continued growth. Approximately 60-80% of the time will be spent in the clinical arena with the remainder being protected research and administrative time. Fellows are expected to participate in research as well as actively contribute in a weekly regional anesthesia journal club. The majority of clinical time is spent in a dedicated 4-bed monitored holding area performing and teaching regional anesthesia techniques to the anesthesia residents. Additional teaching responsibility includes instruction to medical students in the anatomy lab. The opportunity also exists to round with the Acute Pain Service.

Fellows have no attending or call responsibilities. There are voluntary moonlighting opportunities if desired.

The Frank H Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University is offering a one-year Fellowship in Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Management. Our program is designed to provide the trainees with the expertise to effectively select and implement various regional and non-opioid options for enhanced recovery, facilitate OR flow, and improve perioperative management. The Fellows will be exposed to and expected to perform as many ultrasound-guided regional blocks as possible, to achieve procedural expertise by completion of their training.

Our faculty consists of a dedicated group of nationally recognized educators, speakers, and fellowship-trained experts. All our peripheral nerve block procedures are performed under ultrasound guidance; we do not provide any training with nerve stimulation. Our two primary hospitals, St Vincent’s Medical Center and Midstate Hospital, are home to the Connecticut Orthopedic Institute, where we perform over 6000 peripheral and neuraxial blocks annually. Outside of the orthopedic service line, we perform another 4000 truncal and chest wall blocks in our hospitals per year.  Our secondary sites are private ambulatory surgery centers which focus on speed and efficiency. During their training, the Fellows will learn multimodal analgesia, management of complex pain patients, coordination of care with chronic pain providers, and the billing aspects of regional anesthesia. Upon completion of the program, fellows should be fully prepared for clinical careers with a focus in ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia.

The position is 75% fellowship and 25% faculty. Fellows will be expected to complete at least one academic project and submit it to a national meeting for presentation. No call or weekends are required, but there are opportunities for extra work for additional compensation.

This program uses the common application. Submit the completed application directly to the individual Fellowship Program.

The Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine Fellowship at DHMC is a one-year ACGME-approved program within the Department of Anesthesiology.  The program is open to two fellows each year.  The regional fellowship was started in 2005 by Dr. Brian Sites and now has more than twenty-five graduates.  In 2018, the ACGME Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine Fellowship was approved.  The fellow will spend six months on our regional anesthesia team which includes five fully equipped peripheral nerve block perioperative bays at our main hospital, as well as a nerve block area at our high volume out-patient surgery center.  We perform over 200 peripheral nerve blocks each months and collaborate with our surgical colleagues to create best practice perioperative pain pathways.  The regional nerve block team is made up of a main OR attending, Surgery Center attending, one fellow and one to two residents per month.  There is an opportunity to participate with our faculty in international mission trips that include regional anesthesiology.

The fellow will spend three months on the Acute Pain Service that consists of an attending, three APS RN’s, one fellow and one resident.  This group places fluoroscopic guided epidurals for all our main operating room surgeries requiring an epidural (fifty per month), coordinates our ERAs protocols and responds to acute pain consults at our over 400 bed level one trauma hospital.

The year will also include: two weeks in our chronic pain clinic, two weeks on our pediatric pain service, one month of orthopedic anesthesia where the fellow will perform and supervise spinals as well as manage intra-op nerve catheters, and one month of dedicated research time.

Our research program is led by RAPM Associate Editor, Dr. Brian Sites.  Current research focuses on large database outcomes studies related to regional anesthesiology, opioid prescribing trends, our unique fluoroscopy guided epidural program, as well as collaboration with our orthopedic colleagues to improve the care of our orthopedic total joint and trauma patients.

The fellowships offers diverse training in all aspects of regional anesthesia and acute pain medicine and prepares trainees to be leaders in an academic or private practice career. The department offers mentorship by expert researchers, educators, and lecturers in the field of Anesthesiology.  The Upper Valley offers a beautiful cultural and recreational location to live in and learn in during the fellowship year.

The Hackensack University Medical Center Regional Anesthesia Fellowship offers a one-year non-ACGME program (planning future ACGME accreditation) with diverse and comprehensive clinical experience. The mission of our program is to inspire clinical and professional excellence. Fellows will work with engaging faculty and receive exposure to a high volume of ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia techniques for orthopedic, vascular, thoracic and abdominal surgeries. Fellows will actively participate in didactic and scholarly activities with opportunities to teach anesthesiology residents. Clinical time will be spent in the main and ambulatory operating rooms. A new state of the art patient care tower with 24 operating rooms and a premier orthopedic surgery center with 5 operating rooms are anticipated to open in the near future.

The successful applicant will have an M.D. or D.O. degree, completed or in the process of completing an ACGME-accredited residency program in Anesthesiology and be in the process of primary certification by the American Board of Anesthesiology. Prior to the start of training, the applicant must have a New Jersey Medical License.
