Course content

This course involves a high degree of patient contact, offering practical clinical exposure, and enabling you to apply the fundamentals of neuroanatomy and physiology to better understand the clinical features of patients with neurological diseases. You’ll learn how insights from the laboratory are translated into benefits for patients.

In small group teaching sessions and clinics, you’ll have the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge to patients with neurological disease. In the final term you may take a research option (Route A) or a Clinical Neurology Experiential Learning Module (Route B).
