This is a one day course aimed at covering clinically relevant neuroanatomy for junior doctors, dentists and students. Did you find neuroanatomy a complete blur at medical school? Then this course is for you. The courses assumes no knowledge of neuroanatomy and builds from the ground up. The course is taught in an interactive tutorial format, rather than passive lectures.
By the end of course you should have a firm grasp of neuroanatomical terms, understand basic concepts about the development of the nervous system, appreciate its structure and how this can help localise lesions. Each attendee will receive a small amount of pre-course reading and a course companion guide. Refreshments and lunch are NOT provided for this event.
Who is this course aimed for
This course is primarily aimed for trainee doctors in neurosurgery and neurology, but also for healthcare professionals wishing to refresh their clinical neuroanatomy or revise for postgraduate membership exams. As the course builds from the ground up, it is suitable from medical and dental students.
The day starts with registration at 8:30am followed by a prompt 9am start. The morning session will be an introduction to neuroanatomy and development of the nervous system. This will be followed by sessions on descending tracts & understanding upper and lower motor neurone lesions, ascending tracts and their lesions, the basal nuclei and clinical correlates, the cerebellum, neurosurgical emergencies and a final session on localising lesions in the CNS.
