Our Headache Medicine Fellowship program offers a year-long exposure to clinical headache medicine, both in the inpatient and outpatient settings, along with guidance on a research project to be completed before graduation.

Extensive Hands-on Exposure

As a fellow, you will train under some of the nation’s top clinicians, educators and researchers.  We have a highly collaborative faculty network, formal research seminars, informal presentations, journal reviews and didactic lectures that will stimulate your intellect and encourage you in the development of an outstanding career. You will have your own headache continuity clinic and be allowed to independently manage your own patients. You will learn procedures, including onabotulinumtoxinA injections for chronic migraine, non-invasive sphenopalatine ganglion blocks, and occipital nerve blocks. Finally, we will help you formulate a reasonable research project to be completed by graduation.
