David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA

Introduction

The Review of Clinical Neurology Virtual CME Course is designed to provide a comprehensive and practical review of core neurological disorders. It is intended for neurologists who wish to strengthen their competency and proficiency in evaluating, diagnosing, and managing a broad range of neurological disorders.
The course is organized to provide attendees with a review of clinical neurology based on major disease topics. Each neurological core topic will be organized to summarize the clinical spectrum of the disorders, pathophysiology, etiology, diagnostic techniques, and management options.

Course Highlights

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to effectively use this educational symposium to enhance their clinical knowledge of key neurologic disorders, expand their horizons on recent discoveries about disease pathology, appreciate new diagnostic tools and think critically about management options.

Target Audience

This course is designed for the practicing neurologist, as well as neurology, psychiatry, and neurosurgery trainees (residents, fellows). The course will be particularly helpful for allied healthcare providers in neuroscience specialties (psychologists, physician assistants, nurses, and nurse practitioners, speech pathologists, and physical and occupational therapists).
