Clinical Pain Fellowship
The Department of Anesthesiology at LSU Health Shreveport has created an ACGME approved, one-year, clinical pain medicine fellowship program. The program involves multidisciplinary pain management training in all aspects of patient care including diagnostics, therapeutics, and minimally invasive surgical procedures. This highly competitive Fellowship program accepts one Fellow per year and has graduated its first board-certified Anesthesiologist in the 2016-2017 academic year. Locally, this program specializes in the treatment of cancer-related pain. Fellows work closely with the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center and will gain considerable experience in the treatment and diagnosis of cancer-related pain. Fellows will also receive training in acute and chronic pain patient treatment with Dr. Aaron Calodney, MD, President of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP), at Precision Spine Care in Tyler, Texas.
