Headache and Facial Pain Fellowship
Montefiore Medical Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (AECOM) have a long tradition of excellence in headache clinical care, research and education. Established more than 60 years ago, the Montefiore Headache Center was the first facility in the world dedicated exclusively to the research, diagnosis and treatment of headache and facial pain syndromes. The Montefiore Headache Center has received international recognition for clinical excellence, for pioneering new approaches to headache treatment, and for research on headache classification and diagnosis, epidemiology and burden of disease, as well as clinical trials for the treatment of headache disorders.
The Headache Center provides clinical training for residents. We also offer one-year and two-year fellowship programs focusing on outpatient and inpatient management of headache as well as clinical research. The trainee will see headache out-patients in several settings and will round daily on our headache inpatients. In addition, the fellow is expected to participate in headache research. For trainees who spend two years, research opportunities are greatly expanded and include a Masters Degree in Clinical Research through Einstein's NIH-funded Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP).
