Courses      Clerkships

The Neurology Core Clerkship trains students in the execution of the neurology history and physical, and in the evaluation and management of neurological diseases. Students are assigned to one of the following locations for Neurology training: Stanford Hospital inpatient wards; Stanford Hospital outpatient clinic; Stanford Hospital Neurology Intensive Care Unit; Stanford Neurosurgery Service; Santa Clara Valley Medical Center consultation and clinic service; the Palo Alto Veterans Administration Ward/Consultation/Clinics service; Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Consultation and Clinics. All these venues satisfy the core graduation requirement for Neurology. Responsibilities will differ among the different clerkship venues, but a common core of teaching will be presented to all students. All participating students are be expected to attend the common core of teaching, except for Santa Clara Valley students, where teaching is performed locally. By the end of the clerkship, the students will know how to perform a neurological exam and will have increased practical knowledge of clinical conditions affecting the nervous system. The NBME Subject Exam in Neurology is a required component of the clerkship.


Periods Available
1-12, except Christmas break. 4-9 students per period.
