The Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPM) of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists is the professional organisation for specialist pain medicine physicians (fellows) and specialist pain medicine physicians in training (trainees).

The faculty is responsible for the training, examination and continuing education of specialist pain medicine physicians and for the standards of clinical practice for pain medicine in Australia and New Zealand. Formed in 1998, it was the first multidisciplinary medical academy in the world to be devoted to education and training in pain medicine.

The FPM Board oversees the activities of the faculty in accordance with the FPM by-laws and the college-wide strategic plan. The board comprises 12 fellows of FPM elected by the fellowship or nominated in accordance with by-law 1. The dean and vice-dean are elected by the board.
