Regional Anesthesiology Fellowship Program

The Montefiore Medical Center Regional Anesthesiology Fellowship is a collaboration between the main teaching centers at Montefiore's Wakefield Campus and the outpatient based Hutchinson Campus. Also, additional clinical exposures exist at Montefiore's Moses Campus and the Jack D. Weiler Hospital on the Einstein Campus.

The fellowship will emphasize the perioperative management of patients receiving neuraxial or peripheral neural blockade for anesthesia or analgesia. Fellows will become experts in the practice and theory of regional anesthesiology. The fellowship will emphasize multimodal analgesic techniques such as neuraxial and peripheral nerve catheters, local anesthetics and narcotic infusions, and non-narcotic analgesic adjuvants with emphasis on indications, contraindications, side effects, potential complications, and daily management of patients on the acute pain service. The fellow becomes experienced in lumbar and thoracic epidurals, subarachnoid blocks and a variety of upper and lower extremity and continuous catheters. In addition, the fellow will participate in all aspects of educational activities, including grand rounds, regional anesthesia workshops, and clinical and/or laboratory research.

The 2 fellowship positions are open to candidates who have successfully completed residency training in anesthesiology at an accredited training program and who are board eligible or certified in anesthesiology.
