During the two year pain medicine training program trainees need to rapidly build knowledge and skills specific to pain medicine. An understanding of fundamental knowledge and skills relevant to pain medicine practice is essential and assumed when entering the training program. Section one of the FPM 2015 Curriculum, the Conceptual basis of pain medicine addresses major philosophical and conceptual principles that inform the practice of pain medicine. Given the potential complexity of the discipline, a thorough understanding of why a sociopsychobiomedical conceptual framework is preferred and critical appreciation of basic definitions and taxonomy are fundamental.
