Course objectives
The aim of the course is to provide the introduction to clinical neurology. Basic information about the pathophysiology, clinical features, course, diagnosis and treatment of the most important clinical units in neurology will be provided. Based on these data, the students should be able to perform correct interpretation of the medical history and clinical neurological examination in patients with the most frequent neurological diseases, to create syndromological, topical and differential diagnosis, to suggest relevant paraclinic examinations and basic therapeutic approach for these clinical units.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course students should be able to:
- understand and explain the pathophysiology, clinical symptoms, clinical course, diagnosis and treatment of the most frequent neurological diseases;
- create correct semiological, syndromological and topical diagnosis based on medical history and clinical neurological examination;
- perform relevant differential diagnosis in patients with the most common neurological diseases;
- indicate appropriate paraclinic examinations and interpret their basic findings;
- make reasoned decisions about possible etiological diagnosis.
