What do you learn on the postgraduate programme? 

We provide a profound insight in complex forms of acute, subacute and chronic pain and help you develop the communicative, social, technical and manual skills you need to evaluate patients on a multidisciplinary level and to function in a multidisciplinary team. You will also be able to apply your own specific expertise from previous specialised education in a multimodal treatment plan. We organise the content of the education according to the CanMEDS competence domain: physician, scientist, communicator.
