Regional Anesthesiology/Acute Pain Fellowship

Vanderbilt's Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine fellowship was established in 2009 and accredited during the first cycle of accreditation for the specialty in the Fall of 2016. The program accepts 2 fellows each year. The fellowship is split between several sites. 

Primary Site:

  • Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC): a large, quaternary care hospital and level 1 trauma center that is among the top 5 busiest trauma centers in the country.

Secondary Sites:

  • Fast-paced ambulatory orthopedic surgery centers with further expansion plans
  • Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital, a VUMC adjacent children's hospital with acute and chronic pediatric pain programs
  • Vanderbilt Psychiatric Hospital
  • Kijabe Hospital, Kijabe, Kenya, the site of an optional international regional anesthesia elective

Aside from the clinical experience, the curriculum is focused on a broad range of areas, leveraging our superb faculty to provide exposure to an array of topics including deep dives into anatomy, practice and service management, ERAS principles and practice, classic and emerging techniques for regional, informatics, education techniques, etc.

In summary, Vanderbilt combines a world-class clinical experience with training in the breadth of regional techniques, a deep focus on education, and clinical rotations that cannot be matched.
