Quick Facts

Overview

Convenient and Comprehensive Online CME

The Neurology for Non-Neurologists online CME course covers the full scope of clinical neurology: commonly encountered patient complaints such as dizziness, back pain, seizures, and movement disorders, as well as special, common topics that can be mis- or underdiagnosed. Speakers in this continuing medical education program are highly skilled with vast experience educating non-neurologists.

 

As new neurological therapeutics become available, it can be difficult for the non-neurologist to stay abreast. It is important that these clinicians — often the first a patient consults — are familiar with the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, management, and prognosis associated with neurological conditions.
