    I have search the threads not really found specific course info- with the multiple specialties and sub organization that have evolved around MSK and Pain US (AAPMR,AIUM, ASPPM, ASRA etc.) it seems ther eis no one resource to look for different training and courses. If any one knows if this does exist, it would be helpful as well as what people did or didn't like in the courses they went to. What courses have people liked? I have heard to Mayo course is good, but going to MN is out of the question for me. The AAPMR courses unfortunately seem too broken up and too specific per limb, msk only not inclusive of peripheral nerves and MSK.
    Do these comprehensive courses exist?

    I have found the Michigan course to be the best overall starter course (although I can't seem to find the 2013 course listed yet). Been there twice. Mayo is fantastic, but it is MN and it is a lot of info in a short period of time. (been there twice). Gulf coast and Andrews are also great courses. Depends on what you are going to be doing, but been doing this for 10 years, and one course is just the beginning. PMR courses are great also, since they you are around your own kind so to speak, but they are usually specific to upper or lower ext. If anything, it will make you realize how difficult it is and how much you don't know. If injections are the reason, then Mayo is a must with the cadaver portion, although there are now more cadaver courses popping up. Hope that helps

    agree with Mayo course being top notch, what prevents you from going to MN in the summer?

    Nothing is wrong with MN, just hard to get away from practice and family so I prefer as close by as possible- the left coast. Thanks for input.
