Course Description

Instructor: Robert Naismith, M.D., 362-3998
A full-time, four-week clerkship is provided on the inpatient neurology services at Barnes-Jewish Hospital south. Patients are assigned to students, who evaluate and follow them with the resident staff and discuss them regularly in conferences with the senior neurological staff. Students also work in the neurology clinic under staff supervision and attend a series of lectures on neurosurgical problems. The goal of this rotation is to gain expertise in the evaluation and treatment of patients with neurologic diseases.

Up to two students may elect to obtain their clerkship experience on the neurosurgery service. Up to two students may elect a two-week experience in either inpatient or outpatient pediatric neurology. Students participate in the neurology specialty clinics at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, working under the supervision of pediatric neurology fellows and senior staff.
