UCNS Headache Medicine Certification Examination Application Deadline

The next Headache Medicine Certification Examination will be offered in 2012. This computer-based examination, which consists of 200 multiple-choice questions, will be offered at Pearson VUE testing centers. Applications for the examination will be posted in 2012.

Please note, the original practice track pathway of application was scheduled to close on the last day of the application cycle for the 2011 Headache Medicine examination. Since the Headache Medicine examination is not scheduled in 2011, the practice track pathway has been extended and will now close on the last day of the application cycle for the 2012 Headache Medicine examination. After 2012 only those physicians graduating from a UCNS accredited fellowship will be able to apply to sit for the Headache Medicine certification examination.
