The aim of the Curriculum is to define the minimum knowledge about headache required by neurologists for qualification as a specialist in neurology, and is based on information collected from different regions worldwide.

This Curriculum allows for flexibility, and the exact content should be further defined by local headache specialists in the country in which it is used.

The Core Curriculum 2020 is a revision of Core Curriculum from 2011. In the Core Curriculum 2020 each section also includes a list of articles relevant for further reading.
