The Master of Headache Disorders is a continuing professional development programme for healthcare professionals.

Clinical specialist training

This medical master’s programme consists of modules covering headache epidemiology, diagnosis, pathophysiological mechanisms, investigation and management, headache treatment organization, and research.

E-learning prior to on-campus lectures

The programme requires a minimum of 6 individual visits to Copenhagen, Denmark over a two-year period:

  • Modules 1 to 4 are organized with an e-learning self-study period followed by one week of face-to-face sessions at University of Copenhagen.
  • Module 5 is a three week clinical course at the Danish Headache Centre.
  • Module 6 is the final module. This module is comprised of a master’s thesis, which is completed with an oral examination in Denmark.
