Resident and Medical Student Pain Education

CME Resource Suggestions during COVID-19

The Association of American Medical Colleges has some valuable resources that may aid in continuing to provide education during this time. Check out their library of many different types of learning resources, including information specific to pain and opioids, a difficult patient scenario, and spinal cord anatomy:
