Child Neurology Conference

Child neurology faculty, residents and students participate in this conference focusing on the care and treatment of current patients.

Topics include treatment-related dilemmas for children with severe neurological impairment. Discussions also cover quality issues, such as patient access, emergency room management, returning patients, adverse effects of medications, mortality and evidence-based approaches to care.

You will actively participate in group discussions based on articles chosen either by a faculty expert or a resident, with advice from the attending child neurologist.

These sessions give you time to identify and review pertinent clinical literature, particularly in rapidly evolving areas. Topics, for example, have included hypothermia therapy and treatment of neonatal seizures and optic neuritis.
