NENS 301A: Neurology Core Clerkship

Closed to visitors. The Neurology Core Clerkship is designed to train students in the systematic and logical approach to a wide variety of clinical neurology via the comprehension and application of the neurologic history and physical exam in the evaluation and management of neurological diseases. Students are assigned to the following locations for training: Stanford Hospital neurology inpatient wards; Stanford Hospital neurology outpatient clinic; Stanford Hospital Neurology Intensive Care Unit; Stanford Neurosurgery Service; Santa Clara Valley Medical Center neurology inpatient consultation and clinic service; the Palo Alto Veterans Administration ward/ consultation/ clinic neurologic services; Lucile Packard Children's Hospital neurology consultation and clinics. All these venues satisfy the core graduation requirement for the Required Neurology Clerkship. Responsibilities differ among the different clerkship venues, but a common core of teaching and exposure to a variety of neurologic patient encounters and experiences will be presented to all students. Regardless of site location, students are expected to attend the core didactics of the clerkship that take place once weekly on Stanford Hospital campus. By the end of the clerkship, the students will know how to fully evaluate patients (with the neurologic history and competent neurological examination) and will have increased practical knowledge of clinical conditions affecting the nervous system. Passing of the NBME Subject Exam in Neurology is a required component of the clerkship and materials for study are provided to each student in support of this effort. Prereq: None. For students requesting placement on neurosurgery service, preference is given to students who have completed the core surgical clerkship. However, student must have completed formal OR SCRUB TRAINING. Periods Avail: 1-12, except Christmas break. 4-9 students per period. Reporting Instructions: TBA. Units: 6. Call Code: 1.

NENS 308A: Adult Neurology Clerkship

Selective 2. Open to visitors. This clerkship provides an opportunity for students in the clinical years to have an advanced clinical experience in Adult Neurology. The student will be expected to perform at a "subinternship" level on the Stanford inpatient ward and/or inpatient consult service, where they will be evaluating often undifferentiated patients with neurologic symptoms and will have increased independence as a student member of the team. In addition to this advanced clinical and professional role, the student will have an opportunity to be a near-peer mentor for the neurology clerkship students if they chose. This elective is often selected by those students interested in pursuing future residency training and career in Neurology or Neurosciences and is a 4 week rotation in which the schedule conforms to Stanford School of Medicine period dates. This clerkship requires completion of the Required Neurology Clerkship at Stanford (NENS301A) or an equivalent neurology clerkship from an outside institution. In addition, prior approval by Clerkship Director is required. Visiting students wishing to do this clerkship must receive prior approval from Clerkship Director before submitting an application. Prereq: A prior Neurology clerkship and advance approval by the Clerkship Director. Periods Avail: 1-12, full-time for four weeks. 1 student per period. nReporting Instructions: TBA. Units: 6.
