Education Opportunities

Summer Mentorship Program

The Pain Zero Summer Mentorship program is a hands-on 2 week summer mentorship program for pre-medical undergraduate, graduate, and medical students who have interests in Interventional Pain Medicine and/or Minimally Invasive Procedures. The program was started by Pain Zero in 2022 to address the lack of representation of diversity in Pain Medicine.

The program allows students the opportunity to see and evaluate patients in the office setting in addition to the opportunity to observe physicians in clinic, procedure suites & surgery. Students will have the opportunity to participate in research, review anatomy (live/ultrasound/fluoroscopy) and surgical principles, in addition to training clinics.

Fellowship

Welcome to the Pain Zero Chronic Pain Medicine Fellowship.

Our pain management fellowship program is a non-Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accreditation for its initial class in 2025.

The two-year fellowship program is based out of Columbus, OH. Our program offers a wonderful training opportunity with faculty in the field of pain medicine with a strong emphasis on interventional procedures, research, policy, didactics, and education.

Training future pain physicians requires a strong didactic educational program and the opportunity to apply this knowledge thus requiring primary board certification or eligibility as a prerequisite. Our structured educational platform will form the basis for you to become an expert in this sub-specialty and sit for the American Board of Interventional Pain Physicians (ABIPP).

As fellows, you will be immersed in every aspect of research, policy, and patient care. You will be trained to obtain a thorough pain history, perform a focused physical exam, and formulate treatment plans from medications to interventions. This fellowship will provide the hands-on exposure necessary to develop expertise in interventional pain procedures, minimally invasive techniques and neuromodulatory implants. Additionally, you will have ample experience in advanced procedures such as kyphoplasty, ablations, ultrasound guided injections, intrathecal pumps, as well as exposure to implantable devices, decompressive procedures, endoscopic procedures and more. Beyond medicine, our program will enlighten you to the challenges of pain medicine as a medical field and state/national policies regarding our practice and care of patients.

Our goal is not only to prepare you to become proficient in understanding every aspect of pain medicine, but to train you to become a future leader in the field of pain management.
