Overview

Spinal and peripheral nervous system diseases

This course is designed for those who have already attended the course Neurology I and feel comfortable with defining the neuroanatomical localization. The course Neurology II offers the possibility to broaden the knowledge and level of competency in Neurology and aims to provide a logical step-wise approach to the most common diseases particularly of the spinal cord and peripheral nervous system. The morning sessions will include lectures/presentations on various topics such as intervertebral disk disease, AA-instability and Wobbler, degenerative and inflammatory spinal diseases, CSF and imaging diagnostics in spinal diseases, electrodiagnostics, polyneuropathies and myopathies as well as the therapy of the diseases.
The afternoon sessions will focus on problem based solving and case based oriented learning in small groups. At the end of this course, the attending veterinarians will be able to possess the level of competency necessary to solve most of the problems in daily practice dealing with patients with neurological diseases.
