The Regional Anesthesiology & Acute Pain Medicine Fellowship program includes a robust and evolving menu of academic and digital resources for its Fellows.
Since its founding in 1935, the Kim Barrett Memorial Library at Surgery HSS is a vital in-house resource for HSS Staff. The Library is located on the 8th floor of the Hospital’s main building. Fellows and Residents have round-the-clock access to the library.
The scope of the core collection includes the orthopedic, rheumatic, and rehabilitation sciences. The collection consists of journals and books both in electronic and print formats, currently providing access to over 3000 electronic journals including Anesthesiology, Pain, Journal of Pain, Anesthesia & Analgesia, British Journal of Anaesthesia and more. The library also provides access to over 1500 ebooks including Miller's Anesthesia, Anesthesia Secrets, and Faust's Anesthesiology Review. Additionally, the collection includes bibliographic databases, and point-of-care clinical reference.
Fellows can request articles or books not found in the Library’s collection through our interlibrary loan service. Library Staff will locate the articles or books and obtain them. Additionally, the Library offers consultation service for literature searches, in-depth search assistance for systematic reviews, and instruction in how to utilize all the library resources at HSS.
The Kim Barrett Memorial Library also houses the HSS Archives, housing an extensive historical collection of resources dating back to 1863. Fellows who are interested in historical research, or would like to know more about the Library, can contact staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Department of Anesthesiology has a departmental digital media specialist who hosts social media in-services, provides one-on-one media training, offers digital presentation assistance, and serves as a liaison for Hospital-wide digital communications initiatives.
Fellows have the opportunity to assist in the development of professional- and patient-facing digital communication efforts, including continual optimization of the Departmental website, providing patient education material on anesthesia-related topics, and participating in individualized social media efforts that can be used to foster communications between regional anesthesiologists nationwide.
