Clerkship Overview

Welcome to the University of Kansas School of Medicine Neurology Clerkship website! The Neurology Clerkship at KU has historically consisted of a 2-week inpatient experience as a part of the 8-week combined Neuropsychiatry Clerkship. In July 2009, the Neurology Clerkship became a 4-week dedicated clerkship experience in the third-year curriculum. We are excited about the educational opportunities the 4-week experience offers, and the Neurology Clerkship is offered 12 times per year.

Clerkship length: 4 weeks
Clerkship enrollment: ~10 students

Clinical Sites

  • University of Kansas Medical Center
    • Neurology Ward Service
    • Neurology Consult Service
    • Neurology Stroke Service
    • Neuro ICU Service
  • Children's Mercy Hospital Neurology Service

Students are assigned to one of the five clinical sites listed above for the four-week clerkship and participate in outpatient clinics in the Department of Neurology at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Under staff supervision, students are responsible for patient evaluation, examination, and diagnostic synthesis. General Neurology educational experiences during the evaluation and treatment of hospital and clinic patients will be enhanced through small group and case discussions, web modules, and a Neurology Shelf Examination review session.
