Course Description

Explore the Breadth, Depth and Application of Clinical Neuroscience

The clinical neuroscience program (CNS) is a comprehensive, evidence-based series of modules that come together to teach the breadth, depth, and application of clinical neuroscience.

What is Breadth? Throughout the CNS program, scholars will be taught on subject material that is common to all healthcare professionals and needed for the diagnosis and recognition of neurological dysfunction. This includes neuroanatomy, physiology, and the pathology of the nervous system and related systems.

What is Depth? Building upon the breadth of neuroscience, the depth of the CNS program allows practitioners clarity into the clinical thought process and neurophysiology as it relates to the scholar’s specific profession. Our programs are taught at a depth that allows clinicians to be more specific in the assessment, diagnosis, integration, and recognition of the various systems that influence disorders of humankind.

What is Application?: Building upon the breadth and depth of the field of clinical neuroscience, the CNS program dives deep into the physical and functional neurorehabilitation strategies that are specific to the practitioner when applying a functional neurology paradigm of care.

Breadth, depth and application is what allows for clinical mastery.

The clinician of the future will develop individualized neurophysiological approaches of care for their patients.


Description:

The spinal cord is the main conduit that connects the brain to the rest of the body.  Being encased within the vertebral column can act as a double edge sword. On one hand it provides protection and on the other hand it can expose the spinal cord to damage through a myriad of degenerative and traumatic conditions.  This module we review the structure/function of the spinal cord and those degenerative, traumatic, inflammatory, and vascular conditions that impair its function.
