Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues,

The main purpose of World Institute of Pain is to educate and train our colleagues by including local hands-on training, international seminars and exchange of clinicians all over the world.

Turkish Registered Section of World Institute of Pain established in June 2018 has organized 6 international and 6 national meetings since then.

Last year we organized the 6th Interventional Pain Istanbul between 28-30 October 2023, on the 100th Anniversary of the Declaration of the Turkish Republic as well as the 30th anniversary of the establishment of WIP in Antalya with more than 700 participants from 58 countries for the Congress, Symposium and Cadaver Workshop with 6 tables for FIPP and 4 Tables for CIPS with a total number of  80 FIPP/CIPS Participants. The FIPP/CIPS examination was held on the 30 October 2023 in the Akdeniz University, Department of Anatomy in the Medical Faculty with 91 examinees for FIPP-CIPS examination, a world record number since the establishment of the examination.

It is again a great pleasure and honor for us to welcome you all to the 7th Interventional Pain Istanbul, Pain Congress and Cadaver Workshop endorsed by World Institute of Pain and organized by WIP Turkish Registered Section in Istanbul, Turkey to be held between 17-20 October 2024.

This year we will have three days of  lectures and cadaver workshops as well as free and poster presentations for our younger generation, followed by the FIPP-CIPS examination which will be held by the Board of Examination of the World Institute of Pain on the 20th of October 2024.

It is our great honor and pleasure to inform you that from the beginning we have a waiting list both for the Symposium and Cadaver Workshop and Examination.

The cadaver workshop will include all essential and important interventional procedures for chronic pain. Our main goal is to present the scopes of pain medicine, Algology on an interventional level.

The scientific program committee established on a multidisciplinary multinational level, formed of well-known colleagues who gave their whole lives to Pain Medicine will give you the real taste of pain medicine, Algology.

We are looking forward to welcome you in the 7th Interventional Pain Istanbul to be held between 17-20 October 2024 in Istanbul, Turkey
