The AAPM Pain Medicine Fellows Scholarship Program fosters the field's future leaders.

The AAPM Pain Medicine Fellows Scholarship Program scholarship is available to fellows currently in accredited Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or American Osteopathic Association (AOA) pain medicine fellowship programs. Scholarships offset the expense to attend the AAPM Annual Meeting, which will be held on March 6–10, 2019 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO.

The Academy is pleased to offer scholarship recipients, who are future leaders in the pain medicine field, the opportunity to engage with current thought leaders and researchers. The number of scholarships awarded will be determined by available funding.
