Course 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 course will be held fully online via zoom. All speakers are experienced in online presentations and we will incorporate as many interactive elements into the day to keep the course as ‘participatory’ as possible.
