Description:

Stay Abreast of Advances in Neurological Medicine

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.

Neurology for Non-Neurologists 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 online CME course are highly skilled with vast experience educating non-neurologists.

Discover New Guidelines

A clinically based update, this learn-at-your-own-pace course in Neurology provides a maximum of 35.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits ™ and 35.25 MOC points. Available online or via USB, it provides access to unbiased, evidence-based content and case-based reviews so that you may expand your knowledge and incorporate the latest guidelines into your daily practice.
