VTMED 6618 - Clinical Neurology

Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer. 2 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: VTMED 5510 . Enrollment limited to: third- and fourth- year veterinary students. 

E. Davies, C. Dewey, Staff.

The Neurology/Neurosurgery (NNS) clinical rotation at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine is a 2 week time period in which the student is directly involved in the diagnosis and treatment of animals with a diverse array of neurologic disorders. Although primarily devoted to dogs and cats, we occasionally consult with other services such as large animal medicine and surgery. The student is expected to assist in all aspects of the rotation, including patient receiving, medical and surgical treatments, client communication, and record-keeping. In addition to 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 for the student to become comfortable 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.
