Program Goals
The International Headache Academy is designed to inspire a long-term commitment to headache medicine in young neurologists and research scientists via an educational program focused on clinical and research aspects of the field.

Working alongside the American Migraine Foundation (AMF), the Canadian Headache Society (CHS) and the International Headache Society (IHS), it is our goal to develop and mentor future leaders in the field.

The Sixth IHA will be held at the UCLA Meyer & Renee Luskin Conference Center in Los Angeles, CA on Thursday, January 17 thru Saturday, January 19, 2019.

The application period for the Sixth International Headache Academy has ended.

Accepted applicants will receive a stipend of up to $1,000 to offset the costs of hotel, airfare, ground transportation, and meals not provided during the IHA. All expenses must be accompanied by receipts. A travel reimbursement form will be provided after the meeting.

Application materials will be reviewed by a steering committee composed of members of the curriculum development committee and leadership representatives from each of the co-sponsoring organizations.

Applications will be reviewed and rated according to the following:

  • Academic history and productivity
  • Field of study
  • Place of study
  • Quality of research to date (if any)
  • Potential for the applicant to provide leadership in headache medicine and make meaningful contributions to headache research and/or clinical care for many years
