Please read ahead to learn about upcoming events in our Division:
Annual Conference in Regional Anesthesia
This annual event, hosted by the Department of Anesthesiology at the Center for the Future of Surgery in La Jolla, California and will take place January 25-26, 2020.
The Saturday morning lectures by our panel of experts will present basic and advanced techniques of upper and lower extremities and trunk peripheral nerve blocks, ultrasound guidance, and continuous perineural infusions.
On Sunday, the main emphasis of this course is hands-on learning. Cadaver dissections prepared by our faculty will allow participants to study peripheral nerve anatomy firsthand. The ultrasound workshops will give participants the opportunity to identify surface anatomic landmarks and correlate them to cross-sectional imaging at the point of care as well as practice real-time needle guidance.
We will offer an optional
Advanced Ultrasound Workshop for regional anesthesia to a limited number of participants who have already mastered basic skills in ultrasound-guided nerve blockade to learn advanced techniques from our expert faculty in a small group setting. The
Advanced Workshop is limited and participants must be enrolled in the entire workshop.
We hope that you will be able to join us. This course will offer you the opportunity to immerse yourself in a comprehensive learning environment dedicated specifically to the practice of regional anesthesia. Please continue to workshop page for more details.
UCSD Regional Preceptorship Program

Looking for an opportunity to observe ultrasound-guided nerve blocks and continuous catheter placement? Want advice on developing your own regional anesthesia practice and instituting effective billing strategies?
Due to popular demand generated by our many educational workshops, UCSD now offers a one to two day observational preceptorship program for clinicians in practice who are interested in seeing what we do firsthand.
