The Headache Section offers a UCNS accredited one-year fellowship program in clinical training and research. Fellows will gain experience in the diagnosis and management of adult and pediatric headache disorders. Management of chronic headache disorders is gained through our IMATCH program which is an intensive 3 week out-patient day program combining medical, psychological and physical therapies in a coordinated multidisciplinary program. The goal of the program is improvement in function despite the headache. Our 12 bed infusion room offers a unique opportunity to learn management of severe, acute headache, status migrainous, and analgesic overuse headache. Ample time in the schedule is set aside for the planning and development of one or more research projects under the guidance of staff. Participation in ongoing clinical trials is encouraged. Successful completion of the fellowship will prepare individuals for a career in clinical or academic practice. In order to apply to our program candidates must have successfully completed an ACGME-accredited residency program in the United States or a RCPSC-accredited residency program in Canada in one of the following specialties: Adult Neurology, Child Neurology, Medicine, Family Medicine, Rehabilitation Medicine or Psychiatry. International Medical Graduates must have received a currently valid ECFMG certificate in order to apply to our program.
