Chronic Pain Management- Toronto Western Hospital

Program Description

The Chronic Pain Management fellowship is a twelve-month fellowship offered to Anesthesiologists who are interested in comprehensive pain management. 

An emphasis is placed of teaching interventional pain medicine in an evidence-based manner. Candidates learn fluoroscopic and ultrasound-guided techniques in addition to being exposed to intravenous high-dose ketamine infusions, medical and interventional caner pain management, and spinal cord and peripheral nerve stimulation programs.

Pain fellows also learn about psychology, pharmacology, and physical therapy in pain management while working as part of a multidisciplinary team that includes healthcare professionals from these specialties.
