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 injection and continuous perineural catheter procedures. Each fellow personally performs approximately 1,000 blocks during the fellowship, including upper extremity, lower extremity, and paravertebral catheters. Additionally, you supervise approximately 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, each fellow has one dedicated nonclinical day per week on average. 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. Our goal is for every fellow to be published in an indexed, peer-reviewed journal.
