Neuroscience Clerkship




The core material in Neurology is taught via case-based vignettes. Students will spend two 1-hour sessions each week discussing neurology cases. A different member of the Neurology Attending staff will run the sessions each week.

Each hour has several cases describing a patient presentation followed important physical examination findings. Afterwards follows several important questions to work through. These questions follow the Learning Objectives of the Clerkship.

It is expected that students read and prepare the cases in advance of the sessions.

All sessions are held in the Neuroscience Conference room on the fifth floor of Hanna House.
