About the program

The Department of Anesthesiology offers two regional anesthesiology and acute pain medicine fellowships, which provide participants with a well-rounded, one-year clinical, research and teaching experience focused on the perioperative care of surgical patients. Our hospitals are located in Columbus, Ohio, with most rotations (including core months) being completed at University Hospital East. The fellowship has an emphasis on regional anesthesia for orthopaedic surgery during the core months of training, including refining skills for single-shot peripheral nerve and neuraxial blocks, as well as extensive training in perineurial catheter placement and management techniques.
