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). IN CURRENT EPIDEMIOLOGICAL SITUATION, INTERACTIVE SYNCHRONOUS ONLINE TEACHING VIA MS-TEAMS IS USED FOR WORKSHOPS, WHILE PRACTICAL AND CLINICAL TRAINING ARE STILL PERFORMED BY THE CONTACT TEACHING FORM. 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 1st or 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.

Teacher's information
The course takes place at one of the following neurological clinics according to the timetable: - Neurological clinic of the University hospital Brno (FN Brno) - 1st Department of Neurology of the St. Anne´s University Hospital (FN USA) The course starts at 8 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. every day. At the beginning of the first day of their course, the students come to secretariat of particular department: - NK FN Brno, Jihlavská 20, 12th floor of the main building (L), Mrs. Saláková (53223 2503) - NK FN USA, Pekařská 53, building C1, 6th floor, Mrs. Aberlová (54318 2658) Students should bring by themselves white coats and neurological hammers. The neurological hammers are available e.g. in the Medical bookstore in A9 building of the University campus Bohunice (Kamenice 753/5, phone number 54949 3619). Students who take their course in NK FN Brno can borrow the hammer at the secretary (only at the time of they course in NK FN Brno, returnable deposit of 300,- czech crowns will be required). The prerequisite for the course is the basic knowledge of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology (motor pathway: pyramidal tracts, cerebellum, basal ganglia, sensory pathway, thalamus, visual pathway, cranial nerves, neurotransmitters). The preclinical knowledge of anatomy and physiology of the nervous system will be tested by the addmission test performed under the supervision of the teacher during the 2nd day of the course at the very latest. To successfully pass the test, the lower limit of 80% of correct answers will be required. The students who fail in the addmission test have the opportunily to repeat it during the last day of their course (just before the practical exam in Neurology). - During the first two days of the course, introduction to neurology propedeutics and neurological examination will be provided and practiced. The knowledge of clinical neurological examination and propedeutics will be checked by brief oral examinations during the latter part of the course and by the written interim test on the neurological propedeutics, clinical neurological assessment, paraclinical diagnostic methods in neurology performed during the last week of the course (usually on Wednesday, i.e. 13th day of the course). - The other days of the course consist from clinical part (provided by both the inpatient and outpatient parts of the neurological department and special labs, i.e. ultrasonography and clinical neurophysiology - EMG, EEG, evoked potentials) and focused workshops with the specialists in patricular fields of neurology. IN CURRENT EPIDEMIOLOGICAL SITUATION, INTERACTIVE SYNCHRONOUS ONLINE TEACHING VIA MS-TEAMS IS USED FOR WORKSHOPS, WHILE PRACTICAL AND CLINICAL TRAINING ARE STILL PERFORMED BY THE CONTACT TEACHING FORM. Two days of the course takes place in the Department of children's neurology (Children´s hospital, Černopolní 9, building G, 4th floor) to provide the basics of the child neurology (developmental neurology, neurodevelopmental disorders, cerebral palsy, neuromuscular diseases in childhood, paediatric epileptology). These two „children´s hospital days“ will be: - in students taking their course in FN USA: the 6th and 7th day (Monday and Tuesday in the second week of the course) - in students taking their course in FN Brno: the 4th and 9th day (Thursdays in the first and second week of the course). We highly recommend the students to substitute one of their morning lectures by the afternoon one (e.g. from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – i.e. including the morning workshop) or alternatively by their attendace in one evening/night duty (based on the individual appointment with the teacher responsible for particular course). To reach maximal practical impact of such a substitution, it is prefered to perform it during the second or third week of the course. During the last (15th) day of course, the students undergo the PRACTICAL EXAM (classified credit), which represents an integral part of final exam in Neurology and consists of: 3. clinical examination of the patient (incl. medical history), syndromological, topical and differential diagnosis; 4. oral exam focused on clinical neurological examination, neurological propedeutics and the indication and interpretation of basic paraclinic examinations used in neurological patients. WE ASK THE STUDENTS FOR KEEPING ON THEIR MINDS THAT THE SCHEDULE OF THEIR COURSE CAN´T BE CHANGED (with the exception of few very serious reasons – stay abroad, long-term disease). More detailed informations (including the timetable of your course) are available on the notice boards at the secretariats of particular departments. For further details, you can also ask the deputy head of patricular clinic: - In FN Brno: asociate professor Pavel Štourač, MD, PhD (štourač.pavel@fnbrno.cz) - In FN USA: associate professor Marek Baláž, MD, PhD (marek.balaz@fnusa.cz) - In FDN assistant professor Ondřej Horák, MD (horak.ondrej@fnbrno.cz).
The course is also listed under the following terms Autumn 2017, Spring 2018, autumn 2018, spring 2019, autumn 2019, spring 2020, autumn 2020, autumn 2021.
