Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Management Fellowship

Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Management Fellowship

A one-year program enhancing fellows' cognitive, psychomotor and affective skills to safely and effectively administer and teach regional anesthesia and acute pain medicine.

The Section of Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Management (RAAPM) is responsible for the provision of regional anesthetics and acute pain management throughout Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. The RAAPM section performs about 3,500 peripheral nerve blocks, 2,000 neuraxial blocks, 700 continuous peripheral blocks, and 1000 truncal blocks yearly, all in our state-of-the-art six-bed regional anesthesia area. Centrally located within our operating room suite, the RAAPM area is well-staffed and equipped to provide regional anesthesia for a wide range of surgical specialties.

RAAPM fellows have full access to the infrastructure for research and education provided by the Department of Anesthesiology and Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Direct faculty supervision and guidance is provided by subspecialty-trained anesthesiologists with expertise in RAAPM.
