Clerkship Description

The overall goal of the clerkship is to teach students the principles and skills underlying the recognition and management of the neurologic diseases a general medical practitioner is most likely to encounter in practice. Thus, at the conclusion of the clerkship, students should be able to:

  1. Perform a thorough and reliable neurologic examination (MK-1, MK-5, PC-2)
  2. Identify the most likely site (or sites) of dysfunction in the nervous system to explain a patient’s symptoms and signs (i.e., "localize the lesion") (IO-3, 7, 8)
  3. Evaluate commonly encountered neurologic conditions and initiate management (MK-2, MK-3, MK-4, MK-5, PC-1, PC-2, PC-3, PC-4, PC-5, PC-6, PC-7, C-1, C-2, P-1, P-2, P-3, P-4, P-5, PBLI-1, PBLI-2, PBLI-3, PBLI-4, SBP-1, SBP-2)
