PM&R Spine Medicine Fellowship

PM&R Spine Medicine Fellowship

The PM&R Spine Medicine Fellowship is designed to train physicians with an emphasis on an interdisciplinary approach to spinal disorders and their management.

Each fellow completing the Spine Medicine Fellowship will have worked alongside a multidisciplinary team that includes Physiatrists, Anesthesiologists, Psychiatrists, Neurosurgeons, Orthopedic Spine Surgeons, Physical Therapists, and Psychologists in obtaining expertise in Spine Medicine.

This will include the prescription of physical therapy/modalities, use of opioid and adjuvant medications (when indicated), electrodiagnostic medicine, and bracing. Substantial training in interventional spine procedures at all spinal levels and minor surgical procedures (spinal cord stimulation and peripheral nerve stimulation, intrathecal drug delivery, interspinous process spacers, etc) will also be emphasized. In addition to general musculoskeletal and spine disorders, there will be exposure to cervicogenic headaches, cancer pain, vertebral compression fractures, and scoliosis. The spine fellow will also be responsible for the coordination of patient care between various services and assist in the education of PM&R residents and medical students from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
