Pain Medicine Fellowship

The Center for Pain Management is seeking qualified candidates for its 12-month multidisciplinary Pain Medicine Fellowship. This is a salaried, non-ACGME accredited training program for individuals interested in pursuing a career in clinical practice. Fellows will be trained and become proficient in evaluating, diagnosing, treating and managing the medical, psychosocial and psychological aspects of chronic pain, and the dual diagnosis of pain and addiction.

Fellows will spend time at each of the Center’s pain clinics and licensed ambulatory surgical centers in Indianapolis, Greenwood and Lafayette, Indiana. Additionally, Fellows will rotate under the supervision of each of the Center’s experienced board certified pain physicians. The clinical schedule offers Fellows maximum exposure to a diverse patient population, full spectrum of pain disorders, varied perspectives on pain treatment, multidisciplinary pain treatment options and interventional procedures. Time will be divided approximately 50% in the clinical environment evaluating patients and 50% completing interventional procedures.

Fellows that successfully complete the program will gain experience and proficiency in the areas of evaluating, diagnosing and understanding different pain syndromes; performing interventional procedures; conducting multidisciplinary treatments for pain; and managing acute and chronic pain conditions. Successful Fellows will be prepared for clinical practice and should have the ability to pass pain board certifications (other than the ABA), and would be strongly considered for employment by the Center for Pain Management and/ or De novo practices commensurate with their abilities and expertise.
