Pain Management Fellowship
The University of South Florida’s Pain Management Fellowship is a one-year program designed to provide advanced training in the management of chronic pain. The program is housed at the University of South Florida (USF) and is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). There are 6 positions available per year. This is a comprehensive Pain Fellowship that has a mixture of both private and academic rotations. The mixture of settings will allow applicants to be prepared for any career path once training is complete. The specific locations include James A Haley VA Hospital, Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa General Hospital, and the private practice offices of Florida Pain Medicine, Florida Spine & Pain Specialists and Aspire Pain. One of the program’s distinguishing features is its abundant availability of cadaver specimens and biotrain models for hands-on training and practice.
The Fellowship is located in sunny Tampa, FL known for its warm weather, white-sand beaches, Busch Gardens, and Ybor City. Tampa also houses some major sports teams such as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Lightning, and Rays. With the Fellowship’s favorable work-life balance, you have ample time to make the most of your time in Tampa Bay and explore the area.
Competitive applicants may consider joining and becoming involved in the pain societies including NASS, ASIPP, NANS, or SIS. Knowledge of anatomy and reading through interventional pain textbooks is encouraged. Outside rotators who are interested in learning more about the program are invited to visit through the VA rotation.
