Pain Medicine Fellowship

Message from the Program Director

The University of Maryland Pain Management Center (PMC) was founded in 1992 as a division of the Department of Anesthesiology. The practice was located at the downtown Baltimore campus until 2003 when it was relocated to University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute, seven miles from the downtown campus. The practice is a hospital based out of a patient clinic that utilizes a multidisciplinary team approach treating a variety of chronic pain syndromes. Our team includes physicians who are board certified in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, two licensed clinical psychologist, a nurse practitioner, pain medicine fellows, anesthesiology residents, nurses, physical therapists, and a radiographer. All participate in weekly meetings to discuss appropriate treatment options for patients. These may include a multi-modal regimen consisting of medication management, interventional therapy, behavioral and physical therapy.
