PMRC has a structured clinical training program suitable for medical specialist trainees preparing for the Fellowship examination of the Faculty of Pain Medicine ANZCA.
The program includes training in:
- outpatient and inpatient consulting;
- diagnostic and therapeutic neural blockade;
- implantation of drug delivery systems and spinal/peripheral nerve stimulation systems;
- pharmacotherapy of pain;
- cognitive behavioural programs.
PMRC has one hospital funded position (in 2013 it will be two). Over the years Fellows from 20 different countries have been trained via non-funded positions available to external trainees. Such trainees must bring their own salary and additional expense support with them.
The department also provides post-graduate supervision in pain management for clinical psychology trainees, physiotherapy and nursing trainees and dentists.
