Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

A 1-2 week time period in which the student is initially observing the diagnosis, management and treatment of animals with a diverse array of neurologic disorders. Depending on the rotation some students may have the opportunity to take a more primary role in these activities towards the end of the 2-week rotations.  Although primarily devoted to dogs and cats, we occasionally consult with other services such as large animal medicine and surgery and pocket pets/exotics. The student is expected to assist in all aspects of the rotation, including case rounds, patient receiving, medical and surgical treatments, client communication, and record-keeping. In addition to learning through clinical exposure, the student will be taught principles of clinical neurology during "sit-down" topic rounds. The primary goal of the rotation for the student is to gain experience in the clinic and by observing and practicing to become more comfortable and confident in performing and correctly interpreting the neurologic examination in a clinical setting. A secondary goal is the accumulation and application of practical clinical knowledge pertaining to neurologic disease of companion animals.
