    Pain Management Rotation in Jackson Park, Chicago

    Advertisements



    Hi everyone,

    It's been a long time since I've made a post on ValueMD. I'm starting a Pain Management rotation in Jackson Park next week. I was wondering if anyone has been through this rotation and can give me insight into what's expected of me for this rotation. Thanks!

    I did this rotation in August. You work with Dr. W, who is a really nice guy, but still expects you to take the rotation seriously. The hours were, if I remember correctly, 8am (or 9...) to around 2pm in the afternoon. Two days out of the week were OR days where he performed 5-6 LESI's or CESI's (you might want to google that) and we had Wednesdays off. He also requires you to pick a topic and present on it (Friday mornings were presentation days). Overall, great rotation, you do learn something and it's what you make of it. So, read up on pain medications, disc herniations, etc. and have fun.

    no names.. you'll reveal my secret identity!

    scrub class is some random mandatory "class" JPH requires you to take before joining dr. w in the OR.
    the class is 3210432 times longer than it should be.. and i don't remember ever scrubbing in for anything anyways!
    all the pain management OR time will be for epidurals, which you observe without scrubbing in (just a mask and vest)

    IPM’s has special technique called spinal card stimulation which has given the best results for patients with chronic pain . This also help you resist the other medications and therapies.
