Resident and Medical Student Research

Residents and medical students interested in research opportunities should contact the investigator they are interested in working with. Open research opportunities are listed below.

Research Opportunities with Dr. Mina T. Minen

Mia T. Minen, MD, MPH, director of headache research, has mentored 10 medical students (all of whom presented posters and 8 of whom have at least one peer-reviewed publication) and 9 neurology residents (7 of whom have peer-reviewed publications, the other 2 have a poster and/or book chapter). In addition, Dr. Minen has mentored 36 undergraduate students, with the vast majority presenting a poster and the majority being co-authors on at least one peer-reviewed publication.

Dr. Minen’s research is always evolving as future work builds on her team’s current findings. Overall themes of the research include behavioral therapies for migraine (cognitive behavioral therapy, biofeedback, relaxation, and mindfulness), mobile health (mHealth), epidemiology, bridging the undergraduate neurosciences with clinical neurology, and more. Feel free to reach out to learn about current projects for trainees.
