Advanced Pain Training in the Anglia region usually begins with trainees expressing an interest earlier in their training. There is currently no formal interview process however trainees are expected to show a significant interest in Pain Medicine and will have produced audits or attended conferences to support this, prior to starting their Advanced Pain Training. Trainees usually come from within the region, although provisions are being made with the TPD and Deanery to advertise out of region in the future.

If you are interested in pursuing training in this region and would like to speak to a previous trainee then please contact the Faculty at contact@fpm.ac.uk
