Fellowship in Regional Anesthesiology

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.

Description

The Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine offers 3 clinical fellowship positions in Regional Anesthesia based at UWMC and at HMC. The regional fellow will devote 60% of their effort to academic activities related to regional anesthesia, including learning advanced regional anesthesia techniques from our national and internationally known faculty experts, teaching and supervising residents, and performing clinical research.
