NEU1 3001/F - Core Clerkship in Neurology

Cr Hrs: 7 (0-0-40)

This four-week experience is offered in an eight-week rotation in concert with the Psychiatry Clerkship. The clinical sites for the clerkship are at Baptist Memorial Hospital, Methodist University Hospital, and the Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The major emphasis is on developing skills in neurological history taking and in the performance and interpretation of the neurologic examination. The clinical correlations of neurostructure and function taught in Neurosciences are expanded upon in the clinical setting. An exposure to the various categories of neurologic disorders and their pathophysiology is provided. The diagnostic approach to the patient stresses both anatomic and etiologic considerations. Neurology is a focal point for the dynamic advances in our understanding of the pathogenesis of disease and related new therapies. This clerkship is offered in Memphis (NEU1-3001/F), Knoxville (NEU2-3001/F) and Chattanooga (NEU3-3001/F). May be repeated up to 7 credit hours.
