The pain medicine fellowship is a 12-month program (July 1 - June 30) fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Two positions are offered each year, and provides training in acute and chronic non-malignant pain and acute and chronic cancer pain. In addition, the fellows will participate in four month-long rotations with neurology, psychiatry, palliative medicine, and either physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) or anesthesiology.
