We offer many residency rotations in regional anesthesia and perioperative pain medicine. Residents rotate for two different rotations at our outpatient surgery center where they experience ambulatory surgery and regional anesthesia. Residents also rotate at the main hospital on their Acute Pain Service rotation where they learn complex perioperative pain management and inpatient pain medicine. At Sandoval Regional Medical Center residents learn about perioperative pain medicine for more complex orthopedic procedures such as total hip and knee replacements. Residents also have an option to spend more rotations in regional and perioperative rotations in their senior years.
