Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Management Fellowship
Our fellowship emphasizes expert training in state-of-the-art regional anesthesia techniques and multimodal strategies for acute pain management. Cedars-Sinai’s Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Management Fellowship Program was one of the first in the country to become ACGME-accredited. Our mission is to continue to expand our program and sustain our stellar quality of care and standing as one of the top programs in the country. This mission will be aided by our high volume of surgical cases, hospitalwide integration of regional anesthesia techniques into acute pain management for our diverse surgical specialty cases, and the variety and complexity of our patients’ treatment needs. The educational benefits that come from our well-integrated clinical demand for regional anesthesia paired with our immersive and comprehensive didactic curriculums that incorporate advanced regional anesthesia techniques, are reinforced through comprehensive ultrasound workshops and our use of live models in our Simulation Center. We utilize the latest technologies and techniques that center around ultrasound guidance and placement of continuous perineural catheters for inpatients and home use.
Our large and diverse regional faculty have a deep commitment to our fellow’s development of clinical excellence and professionalism that meet the demands of a busy multidisciplinary care team model. The fellow’s education is further enhanced through close mentorship paired with quality improvement projects, and research to be presented at ASRA’s yearly national meeting. Our fellows finish their one year of advanced training with confidence and skills in leadership and are well-positioned to both integrate into an existing regional anesthesia practice, as well as being armed with the knowledge and experience necessary to start a new regional consult service.
