The online Certificate in Pain Medicine is a program with a total seven courses (12 academic units), specifically designed for the practicing professional who wants to improve skills and gain expertise to deliver the best care for patients with complex pain conditions. The curriculum is designed with a series of didactic courses in which students will gain knowledge about the diagnosis, pathobiology and management of pain conditions. The goal of this one-year certificate program is to give practicing health care providers didactic, and evidence-based education in the field of Pain Medicine.
The students participate in weekly live online sessions with faculty and other program students, ensuring a collaborative and social learning experience. There are two-three courses per trimester, with two-four streaming video lectures for viewing each week. After each video lecture students complete an associated online quiz (comprising multiple choice, short answer or fill-in questions).
