The Educational Goal of the Pain fellowship program is to prepare fellows for the independent practice of interventional pain management, acquiring all general and pain medicine specific core competencies.

Our fellowship program operates with the mission of improving function and decreasing pain

Such care includes the delivery of acute and comprehensive pain medicine services in an interdisciplinary continuum of care geared toward the most positive, cost effective outcome possible.  Care is to be rendered in a respectful manner to all patients.

The Interventional Pain Medicine Fellowship Program operates out of the new Montefiore Hutchinson Campus, a state-of-the-art, 22,000 square foot facility located near our Einstein Campus and adjacent to beautiful Pelham and Westchester County

A philosophical pillar for this building was to integrate our institution’s individual Pain services in a central location.  Rehabilitation, Anesthesiology, and Neurology/Headache division have a shared floor.  Three Ambulatory Surgery suites, an eight-bed post-anesthesia care unit  (PACU) and a 12 office examination wing are some of the amenities in our suite. More than 90% of our fellows’ time is spent in this incredible location.
