Our fully accredited Pain Fellowship Program at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University accepts three fellows per year. Two anesthesiology residents also rotate on the Pain Service each month. We accept applications from candidates who are completing an accredited residency in anesthesiology, neurology, PM&R or psychiatry.
The Pain Medicine Fellowship provides interdisciplinary training in the management of acute, chronic, and cancer-related pain. Using a problem-oriented approach, fellows obtain pertinent histories, develop relevant physical examination skills, and order appropriate diagnostic tests in a system-based practice approach. Our fellows also develop superior competence in all aspects of fluoroscopically guided neural blockade, state-of-the art implantable devices, and radio-frequency techniques.
Augusta University Medical Center is a Level I Trauma Center. In addition to the outpatient clinic, Pain Fellows are part of a multidisciplinary team that comprises the pain consult service for hospitalized patients with acute-on-chronic, postoperative, or trauma-related pain.
Clinical training in pain-related fields is available in neurology, neuro-physiology, physiatry, EMG, behavioral psychology, rescue skills, complementary techniques and palliative care. Our curriculum allows for electives from different primary specialties to meet the training needs of our fellows.
