  • Vision

    Pain management requires specific knowledge and skills, either in acute and chronic conditions.

    Several medical specialties are specifically involved in pain management such as
    anesthesiologists, neurologists, physiatrists, and neurosurgeons, however,
    their training is not tailored towards pain management and there is an
    increasing need for more specialized educational programs.

  • Mission
    The diploma aims to:
    Enable all physicians to manage pain patients in both acute and chronic pain conditions.
    To help physicians develop pain centers and multidisciplinary approaches
    To help physicians establish better communication between primary and secondary
    care physicians in the difficult management of chronic pain
    To learn new pain management techniques and interventions with a focus on utilizing
    ultrasound guidance rather than fluoroscopy

    The program will be run in accordance with current international standards and recommendations on pain management given by the French Society of Pain (SFETD) as well as the recent French High Authority of Health (HAS) consensus statement on chronic pain patients flow. This will be adapted to create an educational postgraduate training program for the physicians of Korea, Asian countries, and other neighboring countries in pain medicine.

    Conditions, developed by societies of pain, specify required knowledge, skills, and the criteria that define a training center.

    Physicians, fellows and residents who have followed the courses and validated clinical practice will have accumulated the necessary knowledge and skills to pass the diploma of pain management written examination, administered by the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Montpellier(France).

  • Value

    This program will be based on current
    guidelines and programs from
    international societies of
    pain medicine for pain management training.
