EFIC Pain Schools



EFIC© Pain School


The EFIC© run pain school courses are primarily aimed at younger doctors who are ideally under the age of 45. The broader category of suitable participants encompasses most medical doctors and allied health professionals who have an interest in developing their skills in the field of pain management.


The courses run for 4-5 days and include an evidence-based approach to the assessment, diagnosis and comprehensive management of patients with chronic pain.

EFIC© Fellowships


The EFIC© Fellowship is an individual grant for medical doctors to support training in the diagnosis, treatment and management of pain related conditions. The training takes place for an agreed period of time in an approved center of excellence (listed on the EFIC© website).


The purpose of the Fellowship is to allow the trainee to introduce the knowledge acquired during their training into their everyday clinical pain practice. It is expected that applicant is already involved in the field of pain medicine, or has a clear pathway to become specialist in pain medicine. The Fellowship is not intended to supplement or extend applicant’s current training.
