With the increased interest on pain science and translating evidence in to clinical practice has come discussion of standardizing entry-level curriculum, developing pathways to pain specialization, and creating postprofessional opportunities such as pain-specific residencies and fellowships. This session will informally discuss these current topics, led by the most influential leaders in the field of pain science and rehabilitation. Leaders will discuss the history of pain rehabilitation, and how they personally became interested in the field, as a foundation for discussion surrounding the current state of research on pain and its translation into clinical practice.
