Fellows will spend 10 percent 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. Fellows present their research at the Annual Pain Research Day each 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 PM&R and Anesthesiology residents on their Pain Medicine rotation in peripheral joint and spinal injection techniques, and participate in PM&R residents’ pain didactics lecture series.
