Pain School International

Published on July 6, 2022

Andrea Trescot, MD

Dr. Andrea Trescot describes the establishment of the Pain School International, mentioning that it is a training program for fellows of interventional pain practice. Dr. Trescot describes the need for a standardized pain program due to the observation that physicians from certain countries had high success rates on their exams, while others had high failure rates. Dr. Trescot explains that she addressed this issue through collaboration with a physician in Brazil by establishing a 10-month executive pain fellowship that involved theoretical and practical education, followed by a cadaver lab abroad for the final examination. The success of this program laid the foundation for the Pain School International, a program that reaches fellows worldwide.
