The application cycle for the 2014-15 Stanford Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine Fellowship class is still open for 1 off-cycle spot scheduled to start in Winter 2015. The application cycle for 2015-16 is also open now and will remain open until Summer 2014. I co-direct this training program along with Dr. Lindsey Vokach-Brodsky. In addition to being the only fellowship in this specialty located in Northern California, the Stanford program provides its fellows with a unique training experience in a beautiful setting. Throughout the training year, various clinical rotations at Stanford Medical Center, Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center, and the VA Palo Alto immerse fellows in an environment focused on teaching them advanced regional anesthesia techniques and perioperative pain medicine. Fellows have ample opportunity to participate in clinical research projects and to teach basic and intermediate techniques to residents and other practitioners at educational workshops and study anatomy in the cadaver lab.
If you are interested in applying, please see the Stanford Anesthesia website for further information. To compare programs, visit ASRA.com.
We recently launched the first website for the Anesthesiology and Perioperative Care Service at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System. As our patient population gets more connected with instant access to information via the internet, it is more important than ever for us to reach out to them. We know that going through the surgical process is a stressful experience for patients and families. Through this website, we hope that our Veteran patients will be able to learn more about the cutting-edge anesthesia and pain management services we have to offer them. We also want our prospective staff, trainees, and colleagues to see the great things we’re doing at the VA Palo Alto these days. Please visit us at online!
