Resident Education Program

The aim of this program is to provide first and second year adult and pediatric neurology residents with a foundation in headache medicine education during a weekend session led by experienced faculty in neurologic education and headache medicine.

We hope that this program will inspire a greater number of junior neurology trainees to consider pursuing careers in headache medicine.

Program Details

The AHS Resident Education Program will be held from the evening of Friday, October 11, 2019 through the morning of Sunday, October 13, 2019 at the Georgetown University Hotel and Conference Center in Washington, DC.

Faculty and residents will engage throughout the meeting in an interactive format that features lectures, small group sessions, and workshops, as well as informally at combined faculty-resident dinners.

  • Provide first and second year adult and pediatric neurology residents with a foundation in headache medicine education.
  • Promote the exchange of information and ideas concerning the causes and treatments of headache and related painful disorders.
