Headache Center Fellowship
The Jefferson Headache Center Fellowship program is dedicated to giving to the trainee the highest quality preparation so that he or she can make contributions to patient care and advance the level of knowledge of headache medicine.
The program will prepare the Fellow for a career in clinical headache practice or academic headache medicine. The Fellow will be exposed to outpatient and inpatient headache patient care, as well as clinical headache research involving epidemiology, Neurophysiology, and therapeutic studies. In addition, a pediatric headache rotation is part of the program. Headache medicine is a unique subspecialty of neurology that requires knowledge not previously taught to trainees during their respective residency programs.
The Fellowship program consists of 12 months of training. The trainee will spend most of his or her time in the outpatient and inpatient headache units, but will have ample time to participate in research projects of their choosing. The trainee will see patients 4 days/week, with 2 half days/week devoted to research.
