Research and Instruction
Fellows will spend 10% of their time in research and educational activities.
Under direct faculty supervision, each fellow is expected to initiate at least one research project and prepare at least one research protocol during the training year. The fellows will present their research at the Annual Pain Research Day in spring. They are also encouraged to present their research at national and international meetings and publish in peer-reviewed journals.
Our current areas of research include assessment of pain, neuropathic pain, cancer pain, treatment outcomes in pain, and interventional techniques in pain.
Fellows also perform resident teaching and training. Fellows instruct PMR residents on services in peripheral joint and spinal injection techniques. In addition, fellows participate in PMR residents’ pain didactics lecture series.
