Contact Hours & Academic Credit

College academic credit for clinical hours in the ASPMF non-degree program is awarded by completing 3 contact hours each week during a fifteen week semester. By completing this contact hour requirement, a Fellow will be awarded 1 credit hour on their MTSA transcript. In order to meet this requirement, Fellows must maintain a “Clinical Experience” log that documents time engagement in Acute Pain Management activities. Submission of time and date stamped USGRA block documentation forms, attendance records at MTSA cadaver courses, submission of CE credits for regional courses, video-based Competency-Based Evaluations, and recorded research presentations should be submitted at the completion of each Clinical Practicum course along with the “Clinical Experience” log in order to receive a passing grade for the course.
