Clinical Neurology - Distance Education
Neurological cases are probably some of the scariest to deal with and quickest to get referred. This course aims to demystify the process of localisation and help you gain the confidence to work up these often tricky cases.
Starting with the basics of clinical neurology and an introduction to neuroanatomical localization, the aim is for you to develop a logical step-wise approach to neurological presentations.
Your learning will be enhanced by videos, photos and diagrams and expert feedback as you refine the skills to diagnose and manage common brain, spinal and neuromuscular diseases and adopt practical tips to apply in general practice.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Clinical Neurology course. I am an older graduate and neurology was pretty poorly taught at University. The course was one of the best I have ever done, the tutors were really helpful in answering my questions and made me feel comfortable asking simple things. I would recommend this course to anyone thinking about doing it.
Our ultimate aim is to develop your ability and confidence to work-up neurological cases. We will focus on developing a logical approach to presentations such as:
- Paresis and paralysis
- Seizures, tremors and other paroxysmal events
- Intermittent weakness and collapse
- Tight jaw, dropped jaw and droopy faces
In addition, you will learn to diagnose and manage all of the common brain, spinal and neuromuscular diseases commonly seen in practice.
- Introduction to clinical neurology
- Neuro-ophthalmology and common cranial nerve disorders
- Intracranial diseases
- Epilepsy, tremors and paroxysmal movement disorders
- Exercise-associated weakness and collapse
- Non-surgical spinal diseases
- Surgical spinal diseases
- Neurological causes of lameness and monoparesis
