Copenhagen University is now offering a Master on Headache Disorders. It´s a continuing professional development programme for healthcare professionals.
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.
This medical master’s programme consists of modules covering headache epidemiology, diagnosis, pathophysiological mechanisms, investigation and management, headache treatment organization, and research.
A very positive point of this programme is that its a part-time study programme, which makes it possible to combine it with a full-time job.
