Pain Medicine Fellowship
The SAUSHEC Multidisciplinary Pain Medicine Fellowship is ACGME accredited to train ABMS residency-trained physicians from the background specialties of anesthesiology, physical medicine & rehabilitation, neurology and psychiatry. We seek the most qualified candidates with a demonstrated interest in a career in military pain medicine. Completion of the fellowship and successful subsequent completion of the ABMS Pain Medicine written boards confers ABMS Pain Medicine certification.
At this time, the ABMS has discontinued the pathway for training/certification of non-traditional applicants. Contact us for more information.
