The Departments of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) and Anesthesiology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine house two fellows per academic year. This multidisciplinary fellowship is administratively housed in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehablitation.
The fellowship is designed to provide a comprehensive education in acute, chronic and cancer pain medicine and promote the training of academic musculoskelatal physiatrists through mentorship, research, and clinical care. The fellow may work directly with physiatrists, anesthesiologists and interacts in the clinician and didactic setting with multiple specialists, including orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, radiologists, pediatric pain specialists, behavioral psychologists, physical therapists, and athletic trainers.
Fellows will complete the program with competence in evaluating simple and complex pain problems, a strong understanding of the pharmacotherapy of pain, and exposure to many types of interventional therapies. There are also opportunities for clinical research in therapeutic medications and procedures.
