Courses      Clerkships


Description
Our clerkship provides students with further exposure to basic and advanced neuroimaging of the brain, spine, and head and neck. The curriculum will be tailored to the specific interests of the student incorporating participation in real-time read-out and consultations with our residents, fellows, physician colleagues, and Neuroradiology faculty, didactic and clinical conferences (e.g. weekly interesting case conference and tumor board), and interactive online teaching modules. Students will learn the utility of CT and MRI in diagnosing and treating diseases of the central nervous system and head and neck in both the pediatric and adult populations and will also have the unique opportunity to participate in fluoroscopy-guided lumbar punctures for CSF collection, intrathecal chemotherapy administration, and myelograms. Students are expected to give a short presentation of a case of their choice to fellows and/or faculty at the end of the clerkship rotation. Note: Visiting students wishing to do this clerkship must receive prior approval from the clerkship coordinator before applying. Stanford students are asked to inform the clerkship coordinator of enrollment. Once enrollment is confirmed, students are asked to email the course co-director, Michael Iv (miv@stanford.edu), for further details.
