As anesthesiologists become more involved in health care outside the operating room, a new emphasis on training experts in pain management has emerged. At Hopkins, we provide experience in excess of what is required by the ACGME through training at the Blaustein Chronic Pain Treatment Center. Each of the faculty in the Blaustein center is nationally or internationally known for his work in the treatment of chronic pain and all of them are directly involved in resident education. During this required one-month rotation, residents have broad exposure to chronic pain management on an outpatient basis, evaluating both new pain patient consultations and established pain patients. In addition, residents perform interventional, fluoroscopy-guided pain management techniques. There are also weekly didactics and each resident is asked to give a lunch presentation on a pain topic of his or her choice.
