Neurology Clerkship

Student Information

Welcome to the third-year neurology clerkship. The Neuroscience Institute at Renown Regional Medical Center is very excited to be partnering with the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine's Internal Medicine department to enrich your clinical experience with four weeks of clinical Neurology. Neurology is a rewarding field of study and practice that you encounter regardless of which medical or surgical specialty you choose to pursue. For many of you, this will be the only training in clinical neurology you will receive throughout your entire professional career. The Neurology Clerkship is designed to provide you with exposure to common neurological questions found in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

Neurology is a difficult subject to master in four weeks, but we will provide you with organization and guidance so that you get the most out of your rotation. As this is the first year of our clerkship, we also hope you will give us feedback on what you found helpful and what we could do better to serve the needs of other students in the future. Please don't hesitate to ask for help if you should encounter any problems.

Students are encouraged to contact Willow Hammon (clerkship coordinator) for any further information on rotation schedules, attending contact information, or on the clerkship in general.
