Headache Fellowship

Headache Fellowship

The Headache Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona continues to be one of the most sought-after headache fellowship programs in the country. The one-year program is the largest academic headache program in the United States.

Faculty members hold leadership roles in national and international professional organizations including the American Headache Society, International Headache Society, and American Academy of Neurology.

As a fellow, you will:

  • Train not only in the diagnosis and management of headache disorders in adults, but also in pediatric headache (at Phoenix Children’s Hospital)
  • Learn procedures, including onabotulinumtoxinA and nerve blocks during a dedicated half-day of procedure clinic each week
  • Train in the management of acute concussion and post-traumatic headache during the weekly, one-half day, acute concussion clinic rotation
  • Rotate one week in the autonomic clinic to train in the diagnosis and management of autonomic disorders which commonly accompany many headache disorders

The program provides fellows with approximately 40% of protected time each week for research. By the end of the fellowship year, you'll have engaged in research, presented at national and international meetings, and published peer-reviewed publications.
