The Clinical Centers of Excellence Awards Program helps advance the quality of pain management in the U.S. by recognizing and rewarding excellence in quality clinical care. The annual APS Center of Excellence designation awards interdisciplinary health care teams who provide the most distinguished, comprehensive pain care. Pain management programs from across the United States are all eligible to apply. The selection of awardees is based on judgment of the quality of services provided and not the size or type of the program. This distinction is one of APS's highest honors in the area of clinical treatment. The CCOE application will close on Friday, Nov. 29. Learn more.
