Resident Education Program Fall 2021

Oct92021

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 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

This year, the American Headache Society is excited to offer a virtual Resident Education Program being held Saturday, October 9, 2021.

Faculty and residents will engage throughout the meeting in an interactive format that features lectures, small group sessions and workshops, as well as informally during breaks and a virtual brunch.

The Resident Education Program will:

  • 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.
  • Introduce residents to experienced faculty in neurologic education and headache medicine.
  • Inspire a greater number of neurology residents to pursue careers in headache medicine.

Accepted Applicants

Applicants who are accepted into the program will receive a gift card for one meal (Saturday brunch) and a complimentary one-year Trainee membership to the American Headache Society, or extension of their existing AHS Trainee membership.
