Clinical Neurology Distance Education

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.

Hear more from your tutors Laurent Garosi and Simon Platt:

Past Participant:

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.
