The Department of Anesthesiology and the University of North Carolina Hospitals currently are approved for three one-year ACGME-accredited Pain Medicine fellowship positions. We consider candidates with primary training in Anesthesiology, Neurology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, or Psychiatry.
Our group emphasizes a compassionate, comprehensive, and multidisciplinary approach to the management of patients with acute or chronic pain. We provide the full range of treatments ranging from analgesic management, psychological assessment and therapy, diagnostic and therapeutic pain procedures, and advanced interventional implant techniques. By referral, we have ready access within the UNC system to all other medical specialties, physical therapy, and practitioners of complementary therapies such as acupuncture.
In addition to an excellent didactic program, we offer our major clinical experiences at the UNC Pain Management Center (primary outpatient facility), UNC Imaging and Spine Center (interventional treatments), and at UNC Hospitals (pain consultation services and implanted therapies). All ACGME required sub-specialty experiences are offered within the UNC system or at the Carolina Headache Institute.
We also offer outstanding research support through the Department of Anesthesiology’s Research Division.
