    Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center Pediatric Pain Medicine Fellowship program will participate in the NRMP Pain Medicine match this year.

    Almost all ACGME approved Multidisciplinary Pain Medicine Fellowships in the United States have agreed to participate in the NRMP’s (National Resident Matching Program) match for the fellowship year beginning July 2014. This will be the first year that a match is utilized by pain fellowships. There are just a few programs not participating in the match, including UCLA, Columbia, and Univ. of Buffalo.

    For this first year of the pain match, you will be completing applications requested by the specific institution to which you are applying. Many programs use the “Common Pain Application”.

    ERAS will not be used this first year of the match. Each program will have a separate timeline for interviews, but in general, the match allows applicants to interview at more programs with less time constraints since no final offers of fellowship positions will be made prior to Match Day (October).*

    * Note: programs may inform applicants that an applicant will be ‘ranked to match.’ In such cases the applicant will automatically match into that program, if the applicant ranks the program as their top choice.
