Regional Anesthesia Fellowship

The Yale Regional Anesthesia Fellowship is a one-year program designed to train the candidate in ultrasound, nerve stimulation and landmark guided peripheral nerve blocks using both single injection and continuous catheter technique. The peripheral nerve blocks that we perform most commonly include:

  • Upper limb: interscalene, supraclavicular, infraclavicular, axillary brachial plexus
  • Lower limb: lumbar plexus, femoral, gluteal sciatic, popliteal sciatic, saphenous
  • Truncal: paravertebral, transversus abdominis plane

Almost all the operative blocks are performed immediately outside the OR in a designated treatment area. We are also involved with the pain management of trauma patients in the surgical ICU's. Fellows are expected to attend weekly formal lectures and fresh cadaver dissection workshops and to mentor residents on the clinical service. US Anesthesiology residency training is required for the fellowship.
