Full course description

The purpose of this online course is to provide an overview of a specialists approach to common problems seen in the primary care office. The course will discuss recommendations on management by general practitioners (primary care physicians), based on current guidelines and evidence-based medicine. We will use an active learning approach through recorded sessions, assignments, and discussions. Faculty includes experts from the US, UK, Australia, globally. This program will complement basic training and short courses for general practitioners to bridge the gap of specialty care, especially in underserved areas.


Upon completion of this rotation, participants should be better able to:

  1. Explain a basic approach to neurological history taking and screening neurological examination in a Primary Care setting. 
    1. Provide a review of basic approach to localization of the lesion in Neurology in context of basic neuroanatomy. 
    2. Review approach to evaluation, treatment and red flags for common presentations of the neurological disorders in Primary care settings including headache, dizziness, tremor, and epilepsy.
