On rotations with other department/specialties, the fellow will always have direct supervision (example: Weight Management, Neuroradiology, Neuro-ophthalmology, etc.).
Advocacy Connection Team:
ACT Now Fellow and Advocacy Training Program
ACT Now is a program the fellow will have the opportunity to become a member. This program trains doctors, patients, and caregivers to be advocates. The program includes monthly virtual meetings that educate and discuss various topics on advocacy and the field of migraine and headache disorders. The purpose of these meetings is to expose the group to stigma, policy & regulation, how advocacy should be a part of the treatment plan, and much more. Each advocacy training contains a knowledgeable speaker to educate and answer questions. Break-out sessions also provide intimate discussions about these topics hearing from both the patient/caregiver and doctor perspectives.
