Overview

The aim of this course is to develop a logical step-wise approach to common neurological disease conditions and give guidance for a self-reliant work-up of neurological cases particularly with intracranial and vestibular diseases. The intensive training is structured as a combination of lectures and case-based oriented learning by further diagnostics and work-up of neurological cases in small groups. This approach will enable the attending veterinarian to manage all common diseases of the brain and vestibular system.
