The School, highly interdisciplinary, is open to all physicians professionally interested in this field and offers a three-year course, with three modules per year. Each module consists of a teaching unit which runs from Friday to Sunday, for a total of 18 hours of lessons per week-end, partly with lectures and partly with interactive methodologies. Admission to the courses is limited. The first course will provide the basic notions. The second course will be extended to include topics with more complex diagnostic or therapeutic features. Lastly, in the third year, the programme will complete the study of the issues addressed in the previous two courses, pathogenetic and basic therapy theories will be analysed, and the implications of multidisciplinary diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, and management of a Headache Centre will also be evaluated.
Each learning module will deal with different topics, which will be gradually studied in depth; other topics of specific interest will be added. Each module will be organized as an independent teaching unit, with CME recognition.
At the end of each module an attendance certificate will be issued, after participating in three training modules a Certificate of Expert in Headache first level, after participating in 6 training modules a Certificate of Expert in Headache second level, and after participating in 9 modules a diploma Expert in Headache.
The modular structure allows the participants to attend according to their professional needs and commitments: it is possible to attend the modules discontinuously achieving the diploma Expert in Headache after participating in the number of modules required.
