Practice-Changing Education

Every year, there are a staggering number of critically important updates that need to be understood and incorporated into the practice of neurology to ensure optimal patient care. This special neurology update synthesizes this vast amount of information and presents it with efficiency and effectiveness to ensure that you are current with these updates and the best ways to incorporate them into practice.

Over the course of a week, you will be immersed in an impactful and inspiring neurology learning experience. The faculty, master clinicians and leaders in field of neurology, provide a learning experience that delivers:

  • Approaches that enable you to practice state-of-the-art neurology
  • Guidance for clinical reasoning
  • Case studies
  • Dedicated time for you to pose your specific questions to leaders in their respective fields of neurology and delve into how information presented in this course can be used in your specific clinical setting
  • Practical knowledge that you can “take home” and immediately apply to patient care

Year after year, attendees report they are inspired by the knowledge transfer and find the experience to be invaluable to their clinical practice, understanding of neurologic diseases, diagnostic skills, and treatment outcomes.

OPTIMIZED FOR REMOTE EDUCATION

The 2020 program has been enhanced for distance learning. In addition to being live streamed, all sessions will be recorded and made available to participants for online viewing for 30 days after the end of the course.
