MS in Pain Research, Education & Policy
The Master of Science in Pain Research, Education and Policy (MS-PREP) at Tufts University School of Medicine is the first and only multidisciplinary postgraduate pain management masters program in the United States.
Started in 1999, it was developed by two pain experts - an anesthesiologist/internist and a sociologist; this diversity is reflected in the broad curriculum.
The Master of Science in Pain Research, Education and Policy addresses topics such as the ethical and sociocultural aspects of pain, palliative care, end of life issues, public policy, legislative issues, communication, research methods, and advocacy, along with clinical issues and the neurochemistry of pain.
The program offers a small, interactive environment with internationally renowned faculty and clinicians to allow for optimal advanced learning.
