Professor: Adam Harcourt
Migraine Neurophysiology & Clinical Manifestations
This course is designed to make you a highly competent practitioner to treat migraine and migraine-related disorders. All material will be presented from the most current research available. Treatment and management approaches have been developed through experience gathered by the Carrick Institute & Dr. Harcourt through the management of over 900 migraine patient cases. When you attend the Mastering Migraine module you will be able to integrate and implement what you have learned to effectively become the top migraine clinician in your community.
*To keep the onsite live learning high quality, we are limiting the live event training to only the first 40 doctors to register.
Clinicians Enrolled in the Module will Recieve:
- Flipped Classroom (13 credit hours)
- 3 days of training (25 credit hours)
- 1-year on-demand of recorded video content
- 3 months of unlimited access to Medline upon completion of the module
In order to effectively treat a migraine, you must understand how it neuro-physiology so you can then decide how to solve it for the patient.

- Clinical manifestations and progression
- Classification – Learn to recognize which type of migraine you are addressing.
