Pain School International – Course 3
Aug 25 – Aug 27 all-day
Pain School International - Course 3 @ Budapest | Hungary

Pain School International was created by a group of highly regarded pain physicians from around the world.  It is providing a training program for pain management.


Who is it for:  It is designed to train physicians who have no formal pain education in their countries, and for those who wish to strengthen their skills in interventional pain management. The curriculum provides comprehensive training in the assessment and treatment of chronic pain from the basics to advanced pain treatment.


What/when is the program:  Four sequential, focused, weekend workshops and live patient demos are designed to train doctors in a wide range of pain procedures, with time in between each session to apply the freshly learned skills to their own practice.  The sessions will be in May, June, August and November, in Budapest.


How does it tie in to WIP:  The course is designed as initial training, and therefore complementary to the World Institute of Pain (WIP) administered review courses.  It aims to prepare and channel physicians to eventually participate in the examination and to earn the prestigious title of Fellow of Interventional Pain Practice (FIPP).


Who are the faculty:  The faculty at Pain School International are highly experienced, both as practitioners and as teachers, and they share a great passion for improving pain management worldwide. They are accessible at the interactive lectures, in the lab, on-line, and during breaks, because our goal is not just to inform, but also to inspire.
