Our fellows need to be diplomatic and energetic, have good interpersonal skills, and be enthusiastic members of the clinical team. Fellows should show interest in the clinical and scientific aspects of pain medicine through reading, teaching, and conference participation. The salary for fellows for 2013-2014 is $58,600. Our experience has been that fellows find the salaries adequate in this community.
