The course involves the medical evaluation and treatment of patients with pain due to cancer and other chronic pain syndromes. The student is closely involved with the diagnosis and treatment of various painful conditions. Emphasis is placed on evaluation of the pain patient; the pharmacology of analgesic and adjuvant agents; and interventional techniques for the treatment of pain. Grading for this rotation will be based on faculty evaluation of the student's knowledge base, participation, and interest. As this rotation does not require any of the traditional duties of internship other than evaluation and diagnosis, and acting internship is not available.
