Courses for APMP Certificate

AIPM’s Advanced Pain Management Practitioner (APMP) Certificate – Prescriber Edition – was developed specifically for physicians (MDs, DOs), advanced practice nurses (NPs, CRNAs, APRNs), and physician assistants (PAs) who would like to document their knowledge of best practices in pain care, and who spend a significant portion of their clinical time treating commonly encountered painful conditions, but have not completed pain management fellowship training. Get started on your application today, and soon you’ll have a certificate that reflects your advanced knowledge of how to provide safe and effective pharmacologic pain care. You’ll also be listed in our online directory as an Advanced Pain Management Practitioner certificate-holder.

PLUS – when you apply for the Certificate before December 31, 2016, you’ll also receive five free, 1-hour online CME/CE courses from our 2016 Annual Meeting – valued at more than $200! These courses (listed below) will supplement your Certificate by covering topics such as guidelines for prescribing, best practices for team-based care, pain assessment strategies, and more:
