Application Deadline: April
Number of Positions Available: 4
The department of anesthesiology offers four positions yearly (three in July and one in January) for a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship supported by Henry Ford Health System, one of the largest and most respected integrated health care delivery systems in the country. The fellowship program began in 2002 and has graduated four fellows per year since its inception. Our fellows utilize the latest technology and train from a highly skilled clinical staff at Henry Ford Hospital, a nationally renowned specialty care, teaching, and research institution that is the flagship of Henry Ford Health System.
Fellows benefit from being exposed to a wide spectrum and large number of patients, as our hospital serves the metropolitan population of Detroit as well as the surrounding suburbs. This provides an exceptional environment for learning because of the multiple populations we serve and the breadth of experience they provide.
The goal of the pain medicine fellowship is to provide trainees with a multidisciplinary environment conducive to acquiring the knowledge, skills, clinical judgment, and attitudes that are essential for becoming an exceptional pain medicine physician. Both the faculty and the sponsoring institution are fully committed to providing the educational programs, resources, and facilities necessary to meet this goal. Fellows will be exposed to a variety of administrative experiences, through participation in departmental committees on curriculum, applicant selection, didactics, quality improvement/assessment, and other committees.
Upon completion of this program, our fellows have acquired the knowledge, skills, and techniques necessary to develop their own pain center and are able to evaluate and treat all types of painful conditions, using both conventional and alternative therapies, including the latest invasive technologies.
Fellows receive extensive training in the multidisciplinary evaluation and management of acute pain and both malignant and non-malignant chronic pain. Furthermore, our program is unique in that we offer training in both the pharmacological and psychological management of pain states, as well as training in invasive management including neuromodulation and the placement of spinal cord stimulators, epidural and intrathecal pumps, radiofrequency thermocoagulation, discography, neurolytic blockade, and fluoroscopically guided procedures. In addition, trainees have the opportunity to learn about complementary medical management such as acupuncture and massage therapy.
