    Sorry, I should have asked, where are the best locations. I dont think VMU is a viable option, given the loacation. Any place considered strong in the Southeast/East Coast?

    Private practice.

    I also agree about virgina mason.

    Regional is fun and I enjoy doing it as much as possible. With that being said, I wouldn't put too much emphasis on it as far as doing a fellowship. When I got out of training I had done every type of block at least ONCE,yeah once. I knew how to do all the blocks but it wasn't until private practice that I became very proficient at them. Alot of practices don't even do it b/c of time constraints. Some surgeons don't want them. So unless you already know where you will be practicing post residency, you may be wasting your time. Then again maybe not.

    For a purely regional fellowship, Hospital for Special Surgery (part of Cornell's residency program, but with it's own fellowship) is the place to go in the North East.

    I hear that St. Luke's/Roosevelt in Manhattan is the place to go for regional as one of the most popular regional texts is written by their regionalist, Hadzic. They do the website www.nysorya.com . That comes from our regional guy, Dr. Roy Greengrass, who is another regional luminary. He also swears by Duke. As for Virginia Mason, he says they count epidurals/SABs as regional techniques and that inflates their numbers. I'm sure they still offer quality regional training, though.

    Cheers,
    PMMD

    Very, very well said, Noy.

    Private practice is where I refined my regional skills as well.

    Maybe I should refine my question.

    Im considering doing academic clinical research with regional anesthesia (I know I havent even matched yet, just something thats intriguing), analyzing outcomes, etc. Obviously to do a good study, you need good numbers and a quality program. Ive heard great things about the VM program, like everyone else, and I know that Hopkins sends their people to HSS for a month, and I know someone who is doing a fellowship at St. Luke's.

    Just a thought I had. Didnt know if anyone had any experience with academic regional anesthesia programs.

    Dude,

    I guess I'm kinda an elder here. Kinda sad since my squat intimidates most 20 year old college athletes. :D

    And my opinion is

    groom your future to your future goals.

    Wanna make a name for yourself?

    Follow Michael Roizen's CV.

    Wanna make an NFL low-draft-choice salary?

    Follow the private practice threads.
