Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Describe the surgical and non-surgical management of tumors, vascular malformations, trauma, pain and other pathological processes that affect the central nervous system (e.g. brain, hypophysis, and spinal cord), the peripheral nervous system (e.g. cranial, spinal, and peripheral nerves), the autonomic nervous system, the supporting structures of these systems (e.g. meninges, skull & skull base, and vertebral column), their vascular supply (e.g. intracranial, extracranial, and spinal vasculature), and their histopathology.
• Discuss the use and interpretation of images associated with these conditions
• Discuss neurodegenerative processes and their management.
