Online Pre-learning Modules
Prerequisite for Advanced Regional Anesthesia: Student must be proficient in basic ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia.
Designed for students already familiar with the use of ultrasound and regional nerve blocks, the Advanced Regional Anesthesia course builds on nerve block skills and adds six additional blocks to your regional anesthesia training.
As in the Essentials course, students complete online pre-learning modules to prepare for the hands-on proficiency lab. During the two-day proficiency lab, with guidance by experienced Maverick instructors, students practice the six advanced blocks in a clinical setting using state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment and cadavers.
Once students feel confident in their proficiency of the material, they will test their knowledge with instructors. Upon successful completion of course requirements, each student earns a Certificate of Proficiency.
