Chronic Pain Medicine Fellowship Combined Adult/Pediatric Track

This is an advanced, ACGME-accredited fellowship that is administered through the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Colorado. The fellow will spend 60% and 40% of their time between the adult and pediatric institutions, respectively.


At the University of Colorado Hospital, the fellow will primarily rotate through the adult chronic pain clinic, learning adult chronic pain management, interventional procedures, and implantation and management of dorsal column stimulators. The fellow will be exposed to clinical experience in an academic and community-based setting. Other opportunities available at the adult hospital include rotations through neurosurgery, radiology, sports medicine, headache clinic, and psychiatric clinic. 


At Children’s Hospital Colorado, the fellow will primarily rotate through the multidisciplinary pediatric chronic pain clinic, learning interventional procedures for the pediatric and adolescent patient population. In addition, the fellow will rotate through the pediatric neurology and headache clinic, pediatric psychiatry and psychology, pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation, pediatric palliative care, and pediatric radiology. 


The fellow will spend approximately three days at the adult institution and two days at the pediatric institution each week. This is subject to change based on the educational opportunity. The fellow on the combined track may cover one weekend of pediatric pain call each month at the pediatric institution. At the end of the year, the fellow will be eligible for board certification in pain medicine.
