educational resources and textbooks
The Neurology Clerkship webpage in LUMEN (see www.meddean.luc.edu/lumen/) contains several resources. Under CAI Modules is the Practical Neurology DVD Review by Dr. Biller, which contains the patient videotapes listed in Study Guides 1 and 2. A selection of these patients will constitute the Patient Case Vignette Video Exam, taken at the end of the clerkship. The “Neuroradiology Curriculum” under CAI Modules contains self-study CT and MRI images of normal neuroanatomy as well as neurological disorders.
Under "Curriculum" on the Neurology Clerkship webpage, there are the
Powerpoint slides for the Student Sessions (Neurodiagnostics,
Epilepsy, and Neurological Emergencies). Reading material and a
videotaped demonstration of Lumbar Puncture is also available.
Included are End-of-Life and Nutrition articles pertaining to
Neurology, as well as Dr. Merchut's reading material on the Clinical
Neurology topics from the Medical Neuroscience classroom course.
Sections of this Student Handbook are available under the
