Aside from a small handful of posts, pain management has been pretty much ignored. I want to get a big, broad discussion of this subspecialty going, so contribute anything you can... 1. What is lifestyle like? Salary? Compared to general anesthesia? 2. What is private practice pain clinic like? Solo private practice? 3. Do pain management specialists still do occasional OR work or are they purely seeing patients in a clinical setting? On-call duties? Rounds? 4. Future job outlook? Better than general anesthesia (especially with CRNAs)? 5. What is daily case-load like for pain guys? Variety? Interesting? 6. Anything else? Experiences as resident, as physician, anecdotes, insights, other opinions, pros and cons of the field, etc. If you have experience in or knowledge of the field, contribute anything you can... Thanks!
