Neurology Clerkship

The M3 Neurology Clerkship permits students to experience the discipline of Neurology in an inpatient setting under the supervision of assigned preceptors. The neurology clerkship services consist of the following teams: A) stroke, B) general neurology service and consultation, C) Neurocritical care, D) Tele-neurology, and E) Neurosurgery. Each student divides their time among these services, depending on faculty availability. Students are assigned patients to evaluate and follow, consisting of a mix of new evaluations/admissions and follow-up patients. Students are expected to be able to take an accurate history, perform a focused yet relevant physical examination, a detailed neurological examination, and formulate an initial differential diagnosis from their clinical experiences in the first and second years of their medical education program.
