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.


There are seven basic movements the human body can perform, and all other movements are merely variations of these seven: Pull, Push, Squat, Lunge, Hinge, Rotation and Gait.   The creation of these seven basic movements is critical to human function and performance.   This module discusses the neurological mechanisms involved in the creation and coordination of movement.  You will learn about the main central structures involved in the creation of movement and how these seemingly independent nodes are significantly integrated together.  This module provides the foundational framework necessary for you to understand the pathologies involving the motor system.

Approximately 28% of the US population including both men and women aged 50-89 suffer from some type of movement disorder.  Of that 15-20% are a result of the secondary effects of pharmaceutical management resulting in Tardive Dyskinesia.  Thus, there is a substantial need for a better understanding of the pathophysiology involved in the development and maintenance of some of the most common movement disorders affecting humankind.  In this module you will learn the anatomy and physiology of the main neurological structures involved in the pathogenesis inherent to all movement disorders.  You will also learn examination history taking and examination techniques to allow you to correctly define the movement disorder
