European Diploma of Pain Medicine

The purpose of the European Diploma of Pain Medicine (EDPM) is to harmonize and improve quality standards for safe, independent practice of pain medicine in Europe and elsewhere. 

  • The Diploma Program assesses the competencies of the anaesthesiologist, acting within a multidisciplinary team, and practising as a pain medicine specialist.
