Four Visiting Professorships available for 201616/03/2016
The Visiting Professors programme aims to send headache specialists as representatives of IHS to attend regional meetings, or teach at a headache centre, in countries that might need or want increased headache education and motivation and where, without financial support, attendance of an international specialist would not be possible.
IHS will fund two headache specialists (one senior, one junior) to teach at a national or regional meeting/congress or headache centre. The host country can select topics and suggest at least three specialists who will fit in with their programme. The engagement should comprise at least two lectures and one course/workshop by each specialist. The final decision on the choice of specialists will be made by the IHS Education Committee.
For 2016 IHS will support up to four (4) Visiting Professor events. See guidelines and application form below
