Advanced Cadaver Course of Interventional procedures for the management of the chronic pain patient

Advanced Cadaver Course of Interventional procedures for the management of the chronic pain patient

Barcelona, Spain May 4th-5th   2018.

Program and registration

This Interventional Pain Cadaver Course is designed for physicians who are skilled at performing basic techniques and wanting to measure their procedural knowledge and ability to perform interventional procedures. Participants will experience a comprehensive and intense learning opportunity focused on meeting their needs at the highest level of medical education, having the opportunity to get answers to their questions from pain management experts.

The course will have CME credits provided by the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) set up the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME). The UEMS-EACCME has mutual recognition agreements, for live events, with the American Medical Association(AMA) and with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

This 2-day hands on cadaver course will promote a better understanding of the anatomy and pathophysiology, involved  in chronic pain, and critically review novel state-of-the-art interventional techniques for management of chronic pain. We offer live fluoroscopy-guided and ultrasound-guided workshops covering head upper, lower extremities, trunk and pelvic-perineal procedures.

ü    Each cadaver station is limited to a maximum of 7 participants.

ü    C-arms, ultrasonography and state-of-the-art equipment are utilized in this course.

ü    Our faculty consists of internationally renowned  experts in the field of interventional techniques.



Pain physicians or pain medicine fellows in training, interested in the practice of pain management, who seek the latest developments in interventional techniques, also seeking CME credit hours and introduction or review of proven interventional techniques,


Physicians should be able to integrate multiple aspects of ultrasound and fluoroscopy in interventional pain management in treating their patients so that patients have better outcomes.
