Pain Medicine Fellowship

Pain Center building


To provide an appropriate atmosphere and opportunity for fellows to become consultants and practitioners in Multidisciplinary Pain Medicine. This will encompass a balance between clinical and educational needs.


The University of Michigan’s Pain Medicine Fellowship Program focuses on comprehensive, interdisciplinary and collaborative training in pain management. The structured emphasis of our multidisciplinary approach to pain medicine promotes unity across the departments and thus encompasses competency in the medical, interventional, physical and behavioral aspects, to create top leaders and practitioners.


The University of Michigan Pain Medicine Fellowship offers seven - eight ACGME-accredited positions. This multidisciplinary year of training incorporates the combined resources of the Department of Anesthesiology Back and Pain Center, the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Spine Program and the Veterans Administration Medical Center Pain Program. Each fellow also receives subspecialty education in headache, palliative care, physical therapy, psychology, addiction medicine, radiology, dental, alternative medicine and EMG, as it relates to the field of Pain Medicine, by clinicians belonging to each respective specialty.

The year-long training involves all aspects of diagnostic and interventional pain management techniques across a spectrum of acute, chronic, cancer and palliative pain medicine. Education is enhanced with weekly lectures, hands-on cadaver sessions, quarterly journal clubs and In-Training Exams designed by the program. Each fellow will be involved in a clinical research project and present at a national conference.
