It is mandatory to take Neurology I before continuing on to the next courses. Participants with an advance knowledge and experience may apply directly to the second module by submitting their detailed CV and a letter of motivation addressed to the principal course master for revision.

Overview

The course Neurology III is designed for interested participants who feel comfortable with the interpretation of clinical findings in the neurological examination and the definition of the neuroanatomic localization and wish to broaden their knowledge and level of competency in clinical Neurology. The attendance of the courses Neurology I and Neurology II is not mandatory but participants can profit from the knowledge gained from these courses. It is the aim of Neurology III to develop a logical step-wise approach to common neurological disease conditions and give guidance for a self-reliant work-up of neurological cases. The intensive training is structures as a combination of lectures and interactive presentations as well as case-based oriented learning by work-up of neurological cases in small groups. This approach will enable the attending veterinarian to manage all common diseases of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system seen in daily practice.
