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.
