The major goal of this rotation is to learn how to assess patients with neurologic symptoms so that they can be appropriately diagnosed and treated.
WARD AND CLINIC PERFORMANCE: Students will be evaluated on ward and clinic performance by an inpatient service attending in consultation with other attending physicians as well as neurology residents.
WRITTEN EXAMINATION: The examination, given on the last day of the rotation, is the NBME Clinical Neurology exam.
FINAL GRADE: Final course grade breakdown:
- Clinical Evaluations on the wards and in the clinics = 65%
- Written examination = 20%
- PBL = 10%
- Participation (Observation forms, NIHSS certification, CAPE, etc.) = 5%
Please note clinical assessment is a collaborative decision which includes an attending physician and our faculty grading committee. The grading committee will use feedback/assessments from residents and other faculty you will have worked with on rotation at your assigned site.
