I don't think programs were "left off" or purposely removed. I remember getting an e-mail from the academy a couple of months ago with an attachment to fill out the yearly program form to have an entry in the guide this year. So, if a program director didn't bother to fill out the form and send it in, then the program's not going to be listed.
Regarding the "pain" fellowships, you have to remember, this is an AAPMR sponsored fellowship guide. I don't think any anesthesia program directors have any desire to request a listing. If you look at the entry for Emory, one of the listed instructors is the program director for their PM&R residency program, so I'm sure he throught it would be a good idea that the fellowship be listed.
The UC-Davis anesthesia pain is well know to train Physiatrists, but the one listed in the guide is their PM&R sports fellowship.
There's uncertainty as to whether the AAPMR is going to continue sponsoring PM&R fellowships. Go the Pain and MSK council meetings at the annual assembly this year where I'm sure these things are going to be discussed. Should be quite interesting/entertaining after ampa's e-mail blast.
I think the AAPMR and ABPMR have already given us true Pain guys the heave ho by creating a member council that breaks up pain. Whether it is jealousy or short sighted vision, most of us serious folks have moved on. My money is best spent where I feel it would do good. And this is not in the support of the Academy. In reviewing the responses to AMPA's letter, I have no desire to give my money to folk's who clearly do not want to advocate on my behalf.
Further underscoring the need to make Pain its own residency is the folks who claim to be pain practitioners, the ferral injections, and the myofascists (the purported "pain" folks with the AAPMR).
