The spine medicine fellow will work alongside physiatrists in obtaining expertise in multidisciplinary spine management, which will include the prescription of physical therapy modalities and orthotics with exposure. Substantial training in interventional spine procedures (e.g., epidurals, nerve blocks) and minor surgical procedures (spinal cord stimulators and vertebral augmentation) will be emphasized. A large focus will also be dedicated to electrodiagnostic medicine to assist with evaluating a patient with spine pain to include differential diagnoses for disease entities that mimic symptoms of spinal radiculopathy. Ample opportunities exist to participate in research. The fellowship is a full-time, one-year program.
