The mission of the Comprehensive Pediatric Pain Fellowship is to develop a physician that expertly assesses and manages complex pediatric pain in the diversified settings of the chronic pain clinic, acute inpatient pain service, and perioperative arena. Historically, pediatric chronic pain fellowships have been heavily based on training in the adult hospital and clinic. Alternatively, the Comprehensive Pediatric Pain Fellowship at Nationwide Children’s creates a novel environment that recognizes that pediatric pain is unique and requires different therapeutic approaches than adults.
This 12-month fellowship is 80% pediatric based with 20% spent in the adult chronic pain clinic setting. The fellowship offers meaningful clinical experiences in pediatric chronic pain, pediatric palliative care, pediatric headache, pediatric abdominal pain, and pediatric rheumatology. In addition, exposure will be provided to adult pain clinics at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. This experience will allow the fellow to develop an important understanding of advanced pain interventions commonly utilized in the adult practice which the fellow will be expected to apply in the pediatric setting.
Our Comprehensive Pediatric Pain Fellowship will develop a physician skilled in the practice of pediatric regional anesthesiology and acute pain management. The skills learned in this setting will be readily applicable in any chronic pain clinic or perioperative practice. In course of the fellowship, skills will be developed necessary to collaborate across service lines. The fellowship strives to instill keen awareness of opportunities for academic and quality improvement work.
