Fellowship Curriculum

Trainees in the fellowship program will be extensively exposed to strategies of pain management by both anesthesiologists and faculty from other disciplines. The fellows, regardless of their primary specialty, should be competent in pain assessment, formulation and coordination of a multiple modality treatment plan, integration of pain treatment with primary disease management and palliative care and interaction with members of a disciplinary team.
