This course will allow you to gain familiarity with neurologic clinical practice prior to rotations. Having a solid comfort level with neurologic examinations and neurolocalization is essential, as neurologic diseases are common in practice. This course will provide experience with examinations, neurolocalization and clinical management of intracranial, spinal, and neuromuscular disease. Students will take part in all aspects of case management, by initially shadowing senior students, then functioning more independently as they gain more confidence, while under close supervision of residents and the Chief on duty. This will include practice with clinical histories, examination, neurolocalization, medical records, and treatments. Students will also participate in clinical and didactic teaching rounds. Management, diagnostic, and treatment options for use in general and referral practices will be discussed.
