I've been doing quite a bit of research into these interventional spine fellowships and I was hoping to get some updated answers (since a lot of threads are a few years old on the subject matter).
(1) What is the job outlook after an interventional spine fellowship?
(2) NASS now has a group of "NASS-recognized" interventional spine fellowships. Will these help this field to get more recognized?
(3) Is there any talk of board certification in spine or interventional spine in the future, through the ABMS or ABPMR?
(4) If one is looking into an interventional spine fellowship, should you look into academic vs. private practice, NASS vs. Non-NASS?

Any other thoughts on this subject matter are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

If you want more traffic ask the questions on the Pain forum. Only a small percentage of the doctors in this subforum have pain fellowship.

1)Good although ACGME pain fellowship will make it so that you have no limitations in terms of credentialing
2)It may have value to Ortho-spine in NASS but probably not make a difference overall
3) Nope that what pain management fellowship is for
4) depends on your goals each fellowship needs to be evaluated for its own merits some are spine/MSK/EMG/subacute sweatshops and others offer mentorship and skills talk to graduating senior alumni in the practice and post specific questions on the Board

Thanks, I actually asked it in both the PM&R and Pain forums.

Hi!

Check out this video we made via The Virtual Physiatry Mentors that addresses your questions. ACGME Sports vs Pain (via PM&R dept and anesthesia dept) vs ISMM


We also have some other videos re: interventional spine practice that you may find helpful
