The University of California Irvine Department of Anesthesiology & Perioperative Care has an open fellowship position in its ACGME-accredited Pain Medicine Fellowship Program. The program is truly interdisciplinary; the fellow will become an expert at interventional pain management, opioid and adjunctive medication management, and non-interventional and non-pharmacotherapeutic pain management. Personalized physical and occupational therapy, offloading therapy, acupuncture, advanced interventional procedures, electrodiagnostics, psychological and cognitive therapies, and regional anesthesia are common treatment modalities.

The fellow exposure provides both outpatient chronic pain clinical care and procedures and runs a busy outpatient patient pain service that will provide trainees exposure to a high volume and a large variety of fluoroscopically-guided procedures, spinal cord stimulation, intrathecal pump and kyphoplasty. We also have a unique group of faculty with additional expertise in pediatric pain, practice management, and quality and safety, including leading in safe opioid prescribing. The team includes ACGME Pain Medicine fellows, nursing, physiatrists, anesthesiologists, neurologists as well as strong relationships with surgeons.

UC Irvine is a Level I Trauma Center, stroke center, burn center, NCI-designated cancer center, and houses the only academic pain program in Orange County, California. Candidates must have successfully completed an ACGME-accredited residency in Anesthesiology or Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) and be eligible to obtain a California medical license. The fellow will work with one other Pain fellow and serve as colleague and role model for rotating residents from both the Anesthesiology and PM&R residency programs. The position is for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Application Process:

As an ACGME-accredited Pain Medicine Fellowship, the fellowship participates in the NRMP’s (National Resident Matching Program) Pain Medicine Match.

Applications for the fellowship will be accepted by the Fellowship Coordinator, Britney Prince [email protected].
