ASPMF Description and Curriculum Plan

MTSA is proud to partner with AANA to offer the nation’s first Acute Surgical Pain Management Fellowship (ASPMF) for CRNAs. The Fellowship is 12 months in length and is divided into 3 courses over 3 semesters (15 weeks each). The Fellow will experience the didactic portion of the program concurrently with the clinical section of the program.

Those Fellows solely enrolled in the ASPMF will begin coursework in January and complete the program within one year. Those Fellows simultaneously enrolled in both the ASPMF and the DNAP-C program will begin coursework in September and complete both programs within two years. Please refer to the DNAP-C Handbook for any policies specifically related to that program.
