We offer a 1-year ACGME fellowship in interdisciplinary pain medicine. Our core faculty come from anesthesia, neurology, physiatry, internal medicine, and psychology. All faculty and fellows work in a co-located center eliminating the need to rotate out fellows to meet ACGME requirements. We seek to educate the fellow in and have dedicated faculty groups focusing on neuromodulation, orofacial/headache, spine, abdominal, pelvic, peripheral nerve/CRPS, pediatrics, and cancer. Fellows get exposure to pain psychology and pain physical therapy co-located in our pain clinic. Fellows will learn how to lead interdisciplinary groups of clinicians. Fellows have a continuity clinic whereby they will manage their own patients over a period of several months. We have a comprehensive inpatient pain service and consult, and run the pain service for acute on chronic and chronic patients. We have a robust research group and fellows have the opportunity to apply for an additional year of funded research through a dedicated Stanford Pain Division, NIH pain-focused T32 grant.
