Pain Medicine Fellowship (Minnesota)
Mayo Clinic's Pain Medicine Fellowship provides an excellent opportunity for training in acute, chronic and oncologic pain management. Using a problem-oriented approach, you will obtain pertinent histories, perform relevant physical examinations and order appropriate diagnostic tests. You also will develop superior competence in all aspects of neural blockade.
Acute pain medicine training is focused primarily on postoperative patients. You will gain experience with epidural narcotics and local anesthetics and with caudal, interscalene, epidural, femoral and auxiliary analgesia for adult and pediatric patients.
In addition, a research project may be completed and further clinical training in pain-related fields such as psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, neurology or oncology is available.
The Mayo Clinic Pain Medicine Fellowship is an ACGME-accredited training program that meets the educational and training requirements for board certification from the American Board of Anesthesiology, the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and the American Board of Neurology and Psychiatry.
The Pain Medicine Fellowship began in 1985, and since that time, more than 48 physicians have completed training. It is anticipated that four fellows will complete training in this program annually.
