Pain Medicine

Fellowship program

The UC Davis Pain Management Center is an advanced center for the evaluation and treatment of all forms of pain. The program has a tradition of providing fellows in training with the broadest experience in pain medicine, including appropriate applications of traditional and novel analgesics and state-of-the-art interventional procedures. Our training mission is to help future leaders in Pain Medicine advance through developing advanced knowledge and skills in managing patients in pain while practicing excellent patient care and participating in a stimulating research environment. We are fortunate to enjoy a diverse environment in multidisciplinary pain management where training and staff clinicians from many specialties work together. The clinical experiences offered at UC Davis in pain management are exceptionally varied. Our patient population ranges from adults to children, inpatients to outpatients and to patients with acute postoperative to chronic cancer and nonmalignant pain.

We offer diverse clinical and didactic experience intended to stimulate our trainees to go beyond the facts of what is known in pain management to inquiry of what is yet to be known. Fellows are exposed to the full range of pain treatments from interventional to medical, benign to cancer, and from a medical model to behavioral rehabilitation. Broad ranges of interventional procedures are performed each day including neurolytic techniques and implantable devices such as spinal pumps and stimulators. Training experiences are substantially integrated with didactic and interactive teaching sessions focused toward understanding basic foundations of pain management. Additional off-site experiences are offered to supplement the fellows' experiences including participation in a national cadaver course on implantable devices.
