About the Program


The pain medicine fellowship is a 12-month program (July 1 - June 30) fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Two positions are offered each year, providing training in acute and chronic non-malignant pain and acute and chronic cancer pain. In addition, the fellows will participate in four month-long rotations with neurology, psychiatry, palliative medicine and either physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) or anesthesiology. The fellowship, under the leadership of the fellowship director, Steven Severyn, MD, MBA, offers a comprehensive and diverse opportunity to train at a world-class medical center.

This integrated, multidisciplinary pain medicine fellowship is focused at the OSU Comprehensive Spine Center. The OSU Comprehensive Spine Center is a collaborative effort involving the Departments of Orthopedics, Neurology, Anesthesiology and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Over 4,500 patients are evaluated annually with all surgical procedures performed at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
