The Department is the only one in Australia to be approved for three specialist training positions for the Diploma of Fellowship of the Faculty of Pain Medicine, Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists, which commenced in 1999.
Specialists can also train for the Fellowship of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA).
The department also provides post-graduate supervision, in pain management, for clinical psychology trainees, physiotherapy and nursing trainees and dentists.
In 1996 the first psychiatrist trainee in NSW to train fulltime in pain management was funded to work in the Department by the NSW Institute of Psychiatry.
