Our faculty members have a wide variety of training backgrounds and special interests in pain management – including medical, psychological and invasive treatment modalities.

The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine - Scott & White Pain Management Fellowship Program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Our one-year fellowship is an integrated, multidisciplinary pain management fellowship that includes common and advanced interventional techniques as well as interdisciplinary, acute, chronic and cancer pain management on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
