Statement of Goals:
Clinical Elective: Counts toward 32-credit graduation requirement. Pre-requisite: Neurology Core Rotation This elective is designed to give the student an intense, personalized exposure to clinical neurology.
Learning Activities
The course is designed by the student and course director to meet specific needs of the student. It can include exposure to predominantly inpatient or outpatient populations. It can include exposure to patient populations with the rarer neurologic problems seen at a tertiary referral center, the acute neurologic problems seen at a county hospital, or the common neurologic problems seen at a veteran's hospital. It can involve subspecialty exposure and the elective may be on either a consult service or an inpatient service. The student receives very personal attention as rounds usually consists of only the student, one attending, and one or two residents. This allows the student to get to know the faculty and neurology program well, and gives the faculty a chance to get to know the student very well. Educational objectives are met by rounding, student and resident mini-presentations on appropriate topics, and attending numerous departmental conferences during the course.
