    I am looking for a 1-yr position for interventional pain management (anesthesia run). I have trained from a top of the line Neurology program & will be coming having done an year of fellowship in a neurological sub-specialty (non-pain). I have loads of medical & neuro-ICU experience & am handy with ICU procedures (7 months).

    I want to know what are the prospects for a neurologist to get into one of the anesthesia programs? Are there any programs out there that are good & neurologist friendly? What are the pros & cons for a neurologists going into anesthesia training? What shold one expect coming out of training from such a fellowship?

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.......:xf:

    I recently interviewed at Penn State, U or Michigan and Pitt. All have neurologists on faculty and accept neurology fellows every year. I would compile a list of these programs and apply to all of them.
