Guidance for Pain Fellows’ Education and Research During COVID-19 Free Live CME Webinar May 1, 6 pm CT

Pain fellowship programs are facing unique challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. Restrictions from state governments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have resulted in a rapidly changing and evolving learning environment for todays’ fellows. Innovative solutions must be sought to guarantee proper education is maintained and ensure trainee well-being.

AAPM is hosting a free live CME webinar planned and presented by a panel of pain program directors on Friday, May 1, 6-7:15 pm CT. During the live webinar, the program directors — each of whom serves as officer/board member of the Association of Pain Program Directors ​– will offer recommendations to pain fellowship directors nationally about how to continue fellows’ education and research while maintaining their well-being. Recommendations presented during the webinar will also be published soon in AAPM’s journal Pain Medicine as an accepted manuscript.

Webinar presenters include Magdalena Anitescu, MD PhD; Scott Brancolini, MD; Lynn Kohan, MD; and Boris Spektor, MD. Registration is free and available to anyone interested in

  • Reviewing the 3 stages of GME during COVID-19 and identifying their implication on pain fellowships
  • Evalutating alterations in educational methodology to better support continuing education during COVID-19
  • Appraising alterations in the interview processes to promote a remote interview experience
  • Identifying changes in research process and their impact on scholarly activity, and
  • Reviewing various wellness resources to better provide fellows with needed resources during this time of stress.

There will be dedicated time for live Q&A.

Participation in this live CME webinar activity is free. Registration is required by logging into an existing AAPM account or creating a new account. Contact AAPM Member Services for assistance at [email protected] or 847-375-4731.
