This four day series of seminars will be presented over two weekends and encompasses core concepts within the clinical neurosciences with a focus on clinical neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, neuropathology and neuroimaging.
The clinical neurosciences symposium is a four-day series of seminars presented over two weekends that introduces attendees to core concepts within the clinical neurosciences. The four-part series of seminars will focus on clinical neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, neuropathology and neuroimaging. These core concepts begin at an introductory level and with each seminar develops in complexity so that the attendee ends the day with reinforced knowledge of fundamental principles, yet an advanced clinical understanding of brain structure, function, disease and neuroimaging as a method of investigation. The emphasis of the symposium is the clinical nature of these core areas that form the basis for the clinician’s understanding of the patient with a neurological diagnosis. The entire series of seminars is interrelated so that the attendee is able to obtain an integrated understanding of the brain in homeostasis and during neurological disease.
The Symposium will be at the Balalaika Protea Hotel in Sandton, Maude St, Sandown, Sandton
The possibility of live-streaming to other venues around South Africa is dependent on demand. Please see Registration Form
