The 48 weeks of the Pediatric Pain Medicine Fellowship program are equally divided between the pediatric and adult institutions in several clinical blocks.

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center

Fellows rotate through the following subspecialty rotations in the pediatric environment at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center: Child Psychiatry, Child Neurology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and with the Pediatric Palliative and Comfort Care Team. Training in the area of pediatric pain management consists of rotation with the Surgical / Perioperative Pain Service, Medical Pain Service, and the outpatient Pain Management Clinic (rotation details below).

This includes pediatric patients admitted to our inpatient Functional Independence Restoration Program, one of the few in the country.

University of Cincinnati Medical Center 

The rotations at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center focus on training in the area of adult pain medicine. The inpatient rotation consists of caring for patients with acute postsurgical pain, chronic non-malignant pain, and malignant pain. Fellows also rotate with some of the outpatient clinics, such as the UC Health Pain Management Center and the cancer pain clinic. In addition, we offer a one-week rotation in Neuroradiology to further master knowledge and the skill of interpretation of imaging studies (rotation details below).

Time Off

Fellows are allotted 20 business days for personal time off (includes vacation, conferences, meetings, interview days, etc.), and 8 Cincinnati Children's holidays (unless covering call duties, for which time compensation is provided).
