Examination of the Nervous System (Video tutorial)

Primary tabs

A teaching video of how to conduct the basic neurological examination, designed for 3rd year medical students.
Neurology is introduced into the University of Cape Town MBChB programme in the 3rd year. Each year the Head of the Neurology Department Prof Roland Eastman did a demonstration as part of a whole class lecture and in addition conducted a “Master Class” for the clinicians who would be providing teaching sessions to the students. Just before his retirement this video was produced in an attempt to capture his unique style of teaching. It is intended for use by both students and teachers.
