For physicians specializing in treating pain, together with the FIPP Examining Board, it prepares extensive educational programmes focusing on intervention techniques. Doctors who meet all the criteria and successfully complete the FIPP certification programme, culminating in taking demanding psychometric tests before the FIPP Examining Board, receive a certificate confirming their excellent professional skills and competencies in interventional pain management. The FIPP Certification authorizes physicians (along with the nationallicense) to work in the field of interventional treatment all over the world. At present, more than a thousand physicians from over 60 countries worldwide hold FIPP certification.
