Topics to study DURING the rotation

There are a handful of topics which are very common in Neurology, and which I feel are important for all young physicians to fully understand.

I would encourage you to study and try to understand the clinical relevance of these topics.  We will be discussing these topics at random times during the month.  The more you read about these topics, the more I can teach you during your clinical rotation.
