Welcome Message

During this Core 2 module, you will attend clinics at the Pain Clinic, where we see patients with chronic pain, as well as cancer pain. You will spend time observing and performing chronic pain procedures, but priority is to learn how to take a thorough chronic pain history and develop a differential diagnosis for the patients, as well as a management plan based on your differential. The team of doctors working in the Pain Clinic currently are: Dr. George Evans, Dr. Yvette Goddard, Dr. Peter MacDougall, Dr. Shona Nair, Dr. Howard Nathan, Dr. Cathy Smyth and Dr. Steve Tremblay. We will also be joined in 2018 by Dr. Sarika Alisic.
