Anesthesiology for Professionals

Tri-Institutional Fellowship In Chronic Pain Medicine

The Division of Pain Management offers subspecialty training of one year’s duration at the CA-4 level or beyond. The ACGME accredited Weill Cornell Medical College Pain Medicine Fellowship Program takes place on the campuses of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital – Cornell Campus, Hospital for Special Surgery, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

The goal of this subspecialty training is to prepare the fellow for a career in anesthesiology-based pain management by providing excellent clinical training in acute and chronic in-patient and out-patient services, therapeutic and diagnostics nerve blocks, pain-related invasive procedures and consultative services. Fellows take part in minimally invasive interventional pain procedures, and in the performance of cutting edge procedures such as the implantation of intrathecal pumps and spinal cord stimulators. Fellows also participate in chemical and radiofrequency neurolytic procedures. Partaking in the clinical activities of this service, as well as directed academic study, prepares the Fellow for the AA examination for Subspecialty Certification in Pain Management.
