Fellowship in Acute Pain Management and Regional Anesthesia
The Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital is pleased to offer a Fellowship in
Acute Pain Management and Regional Anesthesia ,
and is now accepting applications from anesthesiologists who desire to focus on this relatively new and rapidly growing subspecialty.
Over a 12-month period, two fellows will rotate through a broad range of clinical areas including outpatient, inpatient, and pediatric regional and acute pain management within MGH, Children's Hospital, and Cambridge Hospital in the Boston area. Fellows will also have the option to extend the fellowship for an additional research year.
The majority of the fellowship year will be spent at MGH on the Acute Pain Service, which has over 8000 patient encounters per year and on the Regional Anesthesia Service which performs over 1900 blocks per year. In additon, fellows will be able to utilize neuraxial techniques in the operating rooms where an average of 35 procedures are performed each week. Fellows will be exposed to a wide variety of blocks for regional pain and acute pain management including single-shot and peripheral and central neural blocks, continuous catheter techniques, ultrasound and fluoroscopy guidance, as well as other innovative approaches to perioperative pain management. In addition, fellows will also participate in a month-long rotation at Children's Hospital to refine their knowledge and skills in perioperative pain management and regional anesthesia care of pediatric patients. Graduates of the program are expected to become highly skilled in regional and acute pain management from basic to the most challenging interventions.
The successful applicant will have an M.D. or equivalent and will have passed the Anesthesiology specialty exams or in the process of examinations by the American Board of Anesthesiology. Candidates must have completed a core residency program with at least one year of clinical training from an ACGME accredited program.
Interested applicants should submit the following: letter of intent, curriculum vitae, official record(s) of Board scores (NBME, FLEX, USMLE), letter of recommendation from anesthesiology residency program director, and two additional letters of recommendation from faculty members. Final selection will be made by a selection committee upon the recommendation of the director of the fellowship program.
Applications are currently being accepted for July 2015.
