Online Master's Degree or Certificate in Pain Management at USC

Posted over 1 year ago by Sue Jervik

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Two weeks ago, we received final university approval to launch an exciting, new program.  We are now starting to enroll for this coming fall for an online master’s degree in Pain Medicine (  This is a 3 year program, and there is also an option for a one year certificate.  This formal USC degree program is open to all licensed clinicians (MDs, nurses, pharmacists, PTs, OTs, dentists, psychologists, etc.)  The need is great—just read the headlines about opioids—but no other program like this exists.  We think this is a game changer that really has the potential to impact care and the treatment of pain throughout the world.

Please spread the word to your professional colleagues.  Visit us at

Thank you,
