REACH On Demand
With only one accredited headache specialist for every 80,000 patients in the United States, access to practitioners with training in Headache Medicine remains the most substantial unmet need for patients with migraine. The Resident Education for Assessment and Care for Headache (REACH) program aims to address this significant problem.
Created to educate neurology residents more extensively about migraine and related headache disorders, the REACH program looks to inspire adult and pediatric neurology residents to receive high-quality education and, potentially, pursue careers in headache medicine so they can better serve the needs of migraine and headache patients. REACH also engages other specialty care disciplines at academic centers with trainees including orofacial pain and pain medicine.
REACH is centered around an innovative half-day curriculum that covers essential concepts in headache medicine. The program includes neurology or other specialty department-wide Grand Rounds with an expert from AHS and the REACH program. Hosted at institutions all over the nation, these half-day programs increase the profile of headache medicine as a subspecialty.
