Sri Ramakrishna Pain Management and Research Institute welcomes physicians to apply for a limited number of Observerships available for a period of 4-8 weeks. These posts are available for Indian as well as International graduates. We can create an original, interactive programme customized to meet your precise requirements.


The Pain Fellowship is for a period of 12 months, with the option of a 4-6 week Observership in world-class institutions abroad organised by Sri Ramakrishna Pain Management and Research Institute. We welcome Indian applicants from various backgrounds including anaesthesia, rehabilitation medicine, neurology and neurosurgery.

The modular training is developed and delivered by expert faculty in partnership with other educational programs. The fellowship has been designed and developed at par with international standards by experts on the subject. The aim is to promote a fellowship in pain that is fit for recognition by national and international organisations.

There is an emphasis on hands-on-learning to ensure skills enhancement. Our resource centre, fully wireless, is equipped with access to high quality education material including online clinical information and access to medical journals, guidelines etc.

A nominal fee will be required to be paid by the Observers and the Fellows to cover administrative costs and associated expenses.
