Finished with Neurology

Yesterday evening… after admittedly pulling an all-nighter to cram for the departmental exam… I finished my neurology rotation. Between Thanksgiving Break, no weekend responsibilities, and the rotation being only a month long, I only spent sixteen days at my clinical site. While that amounts to relatively little exposure compared to other rotations, the lecture series in addition to fantastic teaching by our residents/attendings gave my group of four students a wonderful snapshot of many common neurological pathologies.

We did lumbar punctures. We fully worked up chief complaints of ambiguous symptoms like “weakness” and “tingling.” We read countless CTs, MRIs, and angiograms. We saw Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s dementia, ALS, myasthenia gravis, and a whole slew of other textbook cases in neurology. Overall, it was an incredibly laid back and enjoyable rotation. 馃檪
