Course Overview

This course focuses on the principles of the neurological examination and aims to refresh knowledge of the relevant fundamentals of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology and pathophysiology of the central and peripheral nervous system. In the practical case-based sessions the attendants have intensive training to define the neuroanatomical lesion localization and learn about common neurological diseases seen in private practice.
