Hi, this is my first post and I was wondering if any past or current students could tell me how the Wolford college clinical experience is regarding getting enough exposure to peripheral nerve blocks. Any response would be appreciated. Thanks!

You will get plenty of experience doing peripheral nerve blocks....especially brachial plexus blocks. In fact, there are days where you are assigned to the "block room" and do the brachial plexus blocks for the all the shoulder cases that day. You will get to do some popliteal blocks and ankle blocks as well. Definitely get lots of interscalene experience though. You will also do more spinal blocks than you can imagine. Population here in Naples is fairly old so everyone gets their knees done and each knee case gets a spinal block for the most part. Hope this helped.
Thanks for the info. I'm going to be going to Wolford this fall 2014. I'm excited for the new opportunities and ways to grow. Any tips about how to best be prepared for school? What are the best clinical sites? Thanks for any information you can pass along.
