Each fellow is expected to complete a research project related to either acute or chronic pain management. This includes preliminary literature review, writing of the research protocol, and submission of the protocol to the IRB by the end of the fellowship year. Each fellow is assigned dedicated research hours to devote to this activity. Fellows also meet regularly as a group with the PMC Research Coordinator who assists and guides the fellows through this process. In addition, each fellow is mentored by one of the Pain Medicine attendings who may assist with the selection of a research topic.
