The REACH program aims to increase the profile of  headache medicine and educate residents and other trainees of academic departments about migraine and other headache disorders. An innovative half-day curriculum covers essential concepts in headache, including department Grand Rounds with an AHS expert.

As of spring 2024, the REACH program has been held at more than 70 institutions, educating more than 1,560 residents and other participants. REACH covers expenses, including travel, lodging and meals for the visiting faculty member. Residents in your program will also receive a complimentary trainee membership to AHS.
