Dear Prospective Applicant:

Thank you for exploring our website to learn more about our Clinical Pain Medicine Fellowship program. We are proud to offer a world-class, ACGME-approved, multidisciplinary training experience of the highest caliber.

The Stanford University Division of Pain Medicine has a proven history of leading pain medicine education. Our fellow-centric program provides the full breadth and depth of pain medicine, from directing the care of the most complex of cases, to involvement in cutting-edge research, to participating in high-quality pedagogical research projects. Graduates of our program are true clinician experts and leaders in the field of pain medicine, and are considered the “go to” consultants within academic and community practice.

Our training philosophy includes the use of evidence-based educational methods, such as deliberate practice and simulation training, to optimize trainee performance and learning. This involves 1:1 mentorship and faculty feedback with a focus on pain knowledge and skill mastery. Our faculty are highly regarded and internationally recognized clinicians, educators and researchers who are experienced in this process.

Lastly, our interventional pain medicine program has grown immensely in recent years to include a greater diversity of higher-risk, complex, and cutting edge procedures. I highly encourage you to review our website and power-point presentation for more information on this exiting aspect of training.

Again, thank you for your interest in our Clinical Pain Medicine Fellowship program. We strive to facilitate our trainees’ achievement of their individual career goals. Please contact us with any questions.
