Clinical Neurology | Centre for Veterinary Education

Clinical Neurology

This course will enable you to develop your skills and knowledge to deal with those tricky cases that are often referred to a specialist.

It will take you from the basics of clinical neurology and an introduction to neuroanatomical localization, to developing a logical step-wise approach to the most common neurological presentations of companion animals. 

All this information will be delivered with the help of lots of videos, photos, diagrams and practical tips which you will be able to apply in your practice. Whether you feel that you cannot do neurology because of the complexities of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology or because you don’t have a MRI in your back room, this course is for you. We will show you how to succeed with each and every case!

​The Clinical Neurology Distance Education program is complemented with monthly webinars to conclude each course module and give you opportunity to further interact with your tutors and peers.
