NEU - 792 Advanced Neurology


This advanced course is intended to provide students the opportunity to further develop their clinical skills in the evaluation of patients with neurologic conditions. Students build on the foundational knowledge and experience from the core neurology clerkship, successful completion of which is required. Prior to the start of the rotation, students have the option to identify subspecialties in which they have interest so that a schedule can be developed to reflect these interests. Students may choose to focus on any subspecialties within neurology including general neurology, neuromuscular, stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, neuro-oncology, neuro-ophthalmology, movement disorders, child neurology, dementia, sleep, as well as in the Neuro ICU service and Neuro-Endovascular service. This is a flexible program which will be structured by the course director and course coordinator to best fit the interests of the individual student, based on clinic and attending availability. Specific areas of interest should be discussed with the coordinator at least 8 weeks prior to the rotation start date. Elective Retake Counts for Credit: Yes. Pass/No Pass Grading Allowed: Yes. Credit(s): 2-4
