Headache medicine is a medical subspecialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases or categories of disease involving the central and peripheral manifestations of disturbance to the structures of the head and face.
This includes primary and secondary disturbances of these structures or functions which present for clinical care in multiple specialty areas including primary care areas, such as family practice and general internal medicine, and specialty care areas including, but not restricted to neurology, neurosurgery, otolaryngology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, oromaxillofacial surgery and psychiatry.
For these disease management areas, the practitioner of headache medicine is often the principal care physician and may render all levels of care commensurate with this or his/her training.
Loyola Medicine and the Department of Neurology at Loyola University Chicago (LUC) Stritch School of Medicine, in collaboration with the Diamond Headache Clinic, is offering a one-year Headache Medicine Fellowship program focusing on management of headache disorders.
The fellowship is accredited by the United Council for Neurologic subspecialties (UCNS). The fellows will directly manage patients with headache disorders in outpatient and inpatient settings, and will participate in and conduct headache clinical research.
