Fundamentals of Pain Management: An Interdisciplinary Primer

The application process for the 2013 Fundamentals of Pain Management: An Interdisciplinary Primer course has closed. 

This course, designed primarily for 3rd or 4th year residents and other select interdisciplinary healthcare providers, will be held May 6-8, 2013 just prior to the APS Annual Scientific Meeting in New Orleans, LA. Attendance at the course is coupled with attendance at the 32nd Annual Scientific Meeting May 8-11, 2013.

The Fundamentals course, developed by a group of dedicated pain professionals within the American Pain Society, is designed to provide each participant with a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary learning, a mentored first exposure to the Annual Scientific Meeting, and a foundation for lifelong learning focused on pain management. The APS is proud to offer this educational opportunity and grateful to Endo Pharmaceuticals for their continued support provided through an educational grant.

The Fundamentals course is designed for candidates who are interested in pursuing an academic career involving pain management and is primarily for those in Anesthesiology, Emergency Medicine, Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine and other related disciplines. Each year the grant provides funding for a specified number of participants to be selected through a competitive scholarship application process. The 2013 course will offer 75 seats to well-qualified applicants.
