Clinical Neurology Distance Education with Laurent Garosi and Simon Platt   |   Course - Postgraduate

1 September 2019 - 30 June 2020 | Online CPD

Event Description

This course will enable you to develop your skills and knowledge to deal with those tricky cases that are often referred to a specialist.

It will take you from the basics of clinical neurology and an introduction to neuroanatomical localization, to developing a logical step-wise approach to the most common neurological presentations of companion animals.
All this information will be delivered with the help of videos, photos, diagrams and practical tips which you will be able to apply in your practice. Whether you feel that you cannot do neurology because of the complexities of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology or because you don’t have a MRI in your practice, this course is for you. We will show you how to succeed with each and every case! The Clinical Neurology Distance Education program is complemented with monthly video podcasts to conclude each course module, giving you the opportunity to further interact with your tutors and peers.

Past participant

“I thoroughly enjoyed the Clinical Neurology course. I am an older graduate and neurology was pretty poorly taught at University. The course was one of the best I have ever done, the tutors were really helpful in answering my questions and made me feel comfortable asking simple things. I would recommend this course to anyone thinking about doing it.” Dr Donald Wiggins
