The Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine Fellowship is an educational opportunity within Mayo Clinic's Department of Anesthesiology, which has a long-standing commitment to education, research and the highest quality patient care.
Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine fellows training at Mayo Clinic have full access to the research and education infrastructure provided by the Department of Anesthesiology and Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science.
Here is what Mayo's Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine fellows have said about the program:
- "The primary strengths of the Mayo regional anesthesiology fellowship include the abundance of clinical procedures, the diversity of anesthesia faculty, and experience with a wide range of patients and disease states. In my year as a fellow, I developed the expertise and confidence to perform a broad array of regional techniques and learn the appropriateness of each in complete perioperative management of the surgical suite."
- "The fellowship focuses on regional techniques in a dedicated block area (as opposed to being an in-room provider all day). The volume of blocks available to a single fellow is above and beyond that of other programs."
- "There is a high level of commitment to education on all fronts, and ample time for research and independent study. There is significant flexibility in the schedule to participate in rounds on the acute pain service and take advantage of other education activities."
The Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine Fellowship is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The fellowship is open to physicians who have successfully completed an accredited anesthesiology residency.
The Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine Fellowship is considered subspecialty training in anesthesiology. Graduates who successfully complete the one-year program receive a certificate of completion from Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education.
