The Regional Anesthesia Fellowship at University of Washington offers a one or two-year fellowship for trainees who have completed a three-year anesthesia residency training program in an accredited program in the U.S. or an equivalent program. This clinical fellowship is based at University of Washington Medical Center, the Roosevelt Ambulatory Surgery Center and Harborview Medical Center. The general goal is to provide advanced training in all aspects of Regional Anesthesia including the use of ultrasound guided techniques and the use of peripheral nerve catheters. The program is flexible and can accommodate candidates with different areas and levels of interest.
