EDUCATIONAL GOAL AND OBJECTIVES
1. Clinical Skills

Develop sufficient clinical and basic science knowledge of the pathophysiology, clinical course, and management of patients with common neurologic conditions. This includes both in-patient and out-patient settings;


Identify and accurately describe the significance of key findings on the neurologic examination;
Analyze which laboratory tests, radiographic (CT and MRI) and neurodiagnostic procedures (electroencephalography and electromyography) are indicated for diagnosing common neurological problems and how the appropriate and inappropriate use of these tests impact the quality and cost of medical care;
Distinguish normal and abnormal CT and MRI scans of the brain;
Distinguish normal and abnormal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) findings;
Demonstrate the ability to obtain an accurate and comprehensive patient-centered neurology history from patients and their families that contains all aspects of the history, including issues related to age, gender, cultural and social setting, emotional concerns and spirituality;
Perform an organized, accurate and thorough neurologic examination in both the in-patient and out-patient setting. This includes an appropriate screening neurologic examination in cases of neurologic emergency;
Demonstrate the ability to retrieve, filter, analyze, manage, utilize diagnostic information and other patient specific information to solve problems and make patient-care decisions;
Communicate effectively about neurologic patients in order to concisely summarize a case to a colleague
Apply the scientific method in establishing the causation of disease and efficacy or traditional and non-traditional (alternative) therapies;
Create a thorough and accurate written evaluation of a patient with neurologic disease that includes a history, physical examination, laboratory, impression and plan;
Present a thorough and accurate oral evaluation of a patient with neurologic disease that includes a history, physical examination, laboratories, impression and plan;
2. Whole Person Care

Students will be able to integrate basic science knowledge, clinical skills, values and professional behaviors within the context of providing whole person care for patients;


Demonstrate ability to integrate psycho-social and spiritual care with the physical care of patients;
3. Interpersonal and Communication Skills

RESOURCES

www.Neurologystudent.com is a website that was developed specifically for this clerkship. You should go to the website and click “login”. Then click “New Account” and follow the instructions. The course materials from the first and second year neuroscience course area also available as a resource. If you want to access these, use the same passcode (“key”) as you did for the 3rd year clerkship. I would recommend that you take the pretest at the beginning of the rotation and then follow the on-line course outline beginning with neurology localization and so on. You will need to install the adobe flash player to watch the videos. There are many recorded lectures, handouts, and patient video clips that are included. I would strongly encourage you to utilize this resource in preparation for the subject examination.
Recommended textbooks:
Clinical Neurology, 6th edition. Lange Series, Aminoff, Greenberg, Simon.

Adams and Victor’s Principles of Neurology, 8th edition.

Neurological Examination Made Easy, G. Fuller, is a great physical exam book.

Didactics cannot cover all areas and we can provide the fundamentals and concepts of neurology, but you must study to enhance your learning.


QUESTIONS THAT FREQUENTLY COME UP

    1. Days off are not allowed. There are only extreme/rare situations where exceptions are made (death of a family member, etc.). Please do not request days off to attend a family member’s birthday party, anniversary, etc. Absences are approved by the Clerkship Coordinator or Clerkship Director only and must be approved prior to being taken.

    2. Time off before the final exam. The Neurology Clerkship does not grant time off before the exam to study. You are expected to be at your assigned rotation location Monday through Thursday the week of the exam

    3. Sick: You must contact Monika in the Neurology office at 558-4907 and leave a message for each day you are sick or you will be absent without permission. Two or more days sick require a visit to student health and a note from the doctor.

    4. Missing more than 1 week of the rotation for any reason will require the rotation be repeated as per SOM policy

    5. School of Medicine policy states that you are not allowed to complete work for other rotations during the rotation that you are on.


STUDENT WORK HOUR GUIDELINES AND CALL

The medical needs of patients and the professional responsibilities of student physicians cannot begin or end at arbitrarily defined hours. Having said that, here are some general guidelines about work hours:




    1. The maximum workweek is 80 hours/week averaged over the four-week rotation with in-house call duty scheduled no more frequently than every third night. These hours include time required to care for patients, and time to participate in the organized teaching activities. Study time outside the hospital is not included in this.




    1. Students will not be on call after midnight the night before the National Board Subject Examination.




    1. Students on the ward services at LLUMC and at the VA are expected to take one weekend overnight call and then to participate in morning rounds. This is to be done while staying within the listed work hours guidelines. The specifics of this call schedule should be worked out with the neurology resident on service. This is home call and you are not required to stay in the hospital overnight.  




    1. A maximum of 24 hours of continuous duty in the hospital is permitted. No additional clinical responsibilities can be assigned after 24 hours of continuous in-house duty.




    1. Work with your senior resident for weekend assignments, when on the inpatient service. Students are required to be present each weekday until dismissed by the senior resident or attending.




    1. Clinical duties end with the final test unless needing to complete missed time or responsibilities.



PROFESSIONALISM

Patients view you as a physician; you are learning not only medical information, but how to treat people. You are expected to be prompt, dress and act professionally. This also includes no ringing cell phones or answering phones during patient care, and no talking during patient presentations. Be cautious about how you talk to patients; think about how you would want to be cared for or how others care for your family. Effective communication is vital to patient care. Be active, ask questions, take initiative and expect teaching in return.


CLINIC

When assigned to Loma Linda adult neurology clinics, you do not have a particular attending assignment. Mary Jewell is your contact person at the FMO clinic, but if she is not available ask any resident, attending, or medical assistant to help you find out which attending/resident/NP are in clinic that day, or maybe which subspecialty clinic you are interested in being involved with. Initiative will greatly enhance your learning experience.


PM&R

The SOM requires PMR exposure during medical school and that has been assigned via the neurology rotation. The Neurology Rotation Schedule shows the days assigned to do clinical work with the PM&R department. You are also required to attend PMR didactics; do this on the Wednesday of the week you are assigned clinical work, even if the clinical assignment is not on Wednesday. Location and time is listed on Rotation Location List (below).



CLINICAL NEUROPHYSIOLOGY

Exposure to EEG and EMG occurs during a day of outpatient neurology clinic. For EEG, you will go to the EEG lab (MC-Lobby Level, next to the GI Lab) technician workroom and inquire on when the next EEG is scheduled for you to observe.


To observe an EMG, call the EMG technicians (Liz 2-4104, Lydia 2-4103) to inquire on the times of EMGs scheduled for that day to observe. This will be more meaningful if you first read about EEG and EMG. EEG and EMG introduction discussions are in the Lange Clinical Neurology and UpToDate or Emedicine.
During your PM&R and Clinical Neurophysiology days you are excused from clinic assignments and it is advised to use your free time to study.
On EEG/EMG days: each student needs to observe at least one EMG and EEG and read about that testing. It will be far more educational, if you read initially and then observe the study. Have the technician or physician sign your sheet that you were present. For EEG you can present to the EEG technician room and ask when the next study will be done and EMG’s are scheduled, so inquire there as well to see when the next is and which residents/attendings are involved.
