To enhance training experience, the Department of Anesthesiology offers a variety of electives to fellows enrolled in the Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine Fellowship.
Self-designed program options are available. All electives must be pre-approved by the Director of the Department of Anesthesiology. Each Fellow must submit a proposed budget for the elective to the Director along with his/her request. Elective time is limited to one to two weeks (a maximum of 10 workdays).
