fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
Course objectives
The aim of the course is to provide the basic knowledge about: - key principles of clinical neurological examination; - the most important neurological symptoms and syndromes; - topical neurological diagnosis and differential diagnosis in the most important neurological diagnostic units; - indication of the most frequently used paraclinical examinations in neurological patients and the interpretation of their most important results.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course the students should be able to:
- understand and explain the basics and principles of neurology;
- work with information on the medical history and neurological examination to establish the symptoms and to derive syndromes of the neurological disorders;
- make reasoned decisions about the topical diagnosis and differential diagnosis based on the symptomatology;
- make deductions based on acquired knowledge in the field of neurology;
- indicate and interpret basic paraclinical examinations used in neurological patients.
  • Clinical neurological examination, neurological propedeutics, semiology and syndromology. Furthermore, following topics will be adressed:
  • - taking neurological history;
  • - reflexology, palsies, pyramidal signs;
  • - examination of the cranial nerves;
  • - sensory examination;
  • - extrapyramidal and cerebellar signs;
  • - examination of spine and spinal cord;
  • - disorders of the stance and walking;
  • - meningeal syndrome, intracranial hypo- and hypertension;
  • - uncousciousness;
  • - developmental neurology, neurological examination of pediatric patients.

Teaching methods
Internship + workshops: the practical lectures provided by both the inpatient and outpatient parts of the neurological department (including neurological ICU) and special labs (ultrasonography, clinical neurophysiology, i.e. EMG, EEG, evoked potentials). The concept of learning is problem-oriented (students are taught by solving the problem presented) and team-oriented (small groups of students discuss and choose a solution of the problem). Special emphasis is laid on the development of soft skills, incl. so-called "21st century skills", particularly communication, decision-making skills, critical thinking, crisis communication and teamwork. Starting from 2020-2021, practical lectures will be complemented by a comprehensive range of simulation teaching methods on simulators with varying degrees of fidelity, trainers and virtual patients. Simulation results in subsequent debriefing (feedback to the student).
Assessment methods
ADMISSION TEST on neuroanatomy and neurophysiology (during the 2nd day of the course): preclinical knowledge of anatomy and physiology of the nervous system will be tested. - Interim assessment of clinical skills and knowlege of neurological propedeutics, clinical neurological assessment, paraclinical diagnostic methods in neurology and the ability to create syndrological, topical and diferential diagnosis – the teacher provides objective, specific and targeted feedback to every student. - Written interim test on the neurological propedeutics, clinical neurological assessment, paraclinical diagnostic methods in neurology – during the last week of the course (usually on Wednesday, i.e. 13th day of the course). CLASSIFIED CREDIT (practical exam as an integral part of final exam in Neurology) performed during the last day of the course consisting of: 1. clinical examination of the patient (incl. medical history), syndromological, topical and differential diagnosis; 2. oral exam focused on neurological propedeutics, clinical neurological examination and the indication and interpretation of basic paraclinic examinations used in neurological patients.
