Cleveland Clinic Neurology Update
August 5, 2016 - August 7, 2016$825
Welcome to the 7th Annual Cleveland Clinic Neurology Update. We would like to welcome you to this annual course and hope you find it valuable in your continuing care of patients with neurological disease. Several new changes will be taking place this year. They continue to modify the course based in large part on changes in the field and evaluations from prior participants. They encourage the speakers to use a case-based approach and to focus on clinically meaningful information. They are adding smaller group breakouts for a more connected interaction. The course will also continue to offer SAEs (self-assessment evaluations) credits which are required for Maintenance of Certification through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
This year they have included key areas in neurology including topics in acute stroke management, concussion, back pain, neuroradiology, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, brain tumor, sleep, and neuropathy. They will have new sessions on EMG/NCS and neuromuscular pearls. They will cover CNS infections and will have a session on maintenance of certification. They will have breakout sessions in multiple sclerosis, headache, and dementia and hope you enjoy the new format. All participants will have a chance to attend each session, but the breakout method will allow more give and take with the speakers.
They once again welcome you to the Ritz-Carlton in downtown Washington DC. The venue and support from the Ritz-Carlton have been the key parts of this course’s success.
