Chronic Pain Management (SMH)

St. Michael's Hospital

The Pain Fellowship year is a clinical year with approximately 50% of time dedicated to the Pain Service and 50% of the time to anesthesia coverage of other services including obstetrics in the hospital. The Pain Clinical Services consist of one week long rotations supervising a multi-disciplinary acute pain service, two days per week of Chronic Pain Service Interventional Work and one day per week of Chronic Pain Clinic.

The non-pain clinical time is spent rotating through the different surgical subspecialties in the operating room including vascular surgery, neurosurgery, ENT, general surgery and orthopedics.  We also have a busy obstetrical practice as well as a Preoperative Assessment Facility where we provide preoperative consultations services. There is opportunity to become involved in our ongoing pain research projects as part of the academic program.
