Headache Medicine Fellowship

The Johns Hopkins Headache Medicine Fellowship offered by the Department of Neurology aims to prepare the next generation of headache specialists for the independent practice of headache medicine.

Our training curriculum is based on supervised inpatient and outpatient clinical work with increasing responsibility for all types of patients with head and face pain.
