Headache Fellowship

November 30, 2017


Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai – Headache Fellowship

The Division of Headache Medicine had an unexpected opening for an additional fellow starting July 2018.  We have integrated the study and treatment of headache medicine and pain medicine, which is also highly unusual. We have three headache sites, and the fellows rotate to all of these which increase the exposure to a variety of conditions.

We offer comprehensive clinical training in a broad range of headache disorders including secondary headache syndromes, migraine and its multiple subtypes, tension headache, medication-overuse headache and other chronic headache forms, trigeminal autonomic cephalgias, and various facial pain syndromes. When you complete our program, you are board eligible in headache medicine.

As a fellow, you work under our Director Mark Green, MD, FAAN, a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and a Diplomate in Headache Medicine through the United Council for Neurological Subspecialties. You also work with faculty from the Departments of Psychiatry, Otolaryngology, Neurosurgery, Neuropsychology, and Facial Pain Dentistry. You explore a variety of services, including biofeedback and intravenous infusions for acute headaches and you will learn about headaches in children.  In addition to providing inpatient, emergency room, and outpatient consultations, you also have the opportunity to train neurology residents, pain medicine fellows, and medical students and to help manage the headache clinic operated by the neurology residents.

Research is also a key component of the fellowship. We anticipate that you will contribute to ongoing research in headache and development of new treatment protocols and participate in clinical trials. You may be able to author and coauthor research articles and to present at conferences.

Our faculty includes neurologists and anesthesiologists trained in headache and pain management, and faculty from the departments of psychiatry, otolaryngology, neurosurgery, neuropsychology, and facial pain dentistry.
