About the Program
Providing broad exposure to chronic painful disorders, our fellowship blends formal and informal didactics along with outpatient clinic experience, pharmacologic management, advanced interventional techniques and cutting-edge neuromodulation therapies.
We offer a multidisciplinary approach to pain management, collaborating with providers in other specialties such as neurology, psychology, anesthesiology, palliative care and integrative medicine. This facilitates a well-rounded, comprehensive approach to patients with even the most complicated chronic pain issues.
Trainees also have the opportunity to participate in research by collaborating with faculty members.
