The one-year Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, offers an outstanding experience that can be tailored to meet your educational goals.
Responsibilities include patient management and teaching. You gain experience in a wide range of skills associated with regional anesthesiology utilizing state-of-the-art ultrasound-guided techniques to perform single shot and catheter blocks. Each fellow personally performs over 1,000 blocks during the fellowship, including upper and lower extremity catheters as well as paravertebral catheters. Additionally, you supervise another 500 blocks performed by residents. You are intimately involved with the acute pain service to prepare residents to become perioperative physicians.
To enhance the academic mission, the fellowship has one dedicated nonclinical day per week for each trainee. Fellows do not take call, which maximizes your clinical and academic experience.
This subspecialty fellowship prepares you to evaluate pertinent literature, develop and conduct original clinical or basic science research projects, and present such work at national and international academic meetings. Every fellow has published peer-reviewed manuscripts in indexed academic journals.
