Program Purpose / Objectives

This course will provide a working knowledge of the most common neurological problems and reinforce principles of clinical diagnosis while reviewing the symptoms and signs of most major neurological diseases. The seminar will also present clear, practical guidelines for managing these common problems including how to integrate laboratory tests and imaging techniques into the patient's evaluation. Finally, the current treatment for these disorders will be developed in sufficient detail to permit independent management or active participation in care with the neurologist.

Emphasis will be placed on clinical diagnosis and practical treatment with introduction of clinical neuroscience as needed to clarify management issues.

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to: recognize the symptoms and signs of the most common neurological diseases; apply fundamental disease concepts to patient management; educate their patients regarding the basic concepts and natural history of these diseases and participate with their patients and consulting neurologists in decisions regarding modern disease therapy and prevention.

This seminar will be relevant to family practitioners, internists, neurologists and others who manage patients with neurological disorders.

Ports of Call

San Juan, Puerto Rico - In days of yore, the waters near Puerto Rico teemed with pirate ships commanded by the likes of Sir Francis Drake. Aye, they are long gone, but in their wake they have left an island of national treasures: La Casa Blanca, built in 1501 for the island's first governor, Ponce de Leon; the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan; the tropical rain forests of El Yunque.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. - Named after a Danish Queen, Charlotte Amalie has one of the most breathtaking deepwater harbors in the world. The key sights of Charlotte Amalie are located within the town centre, making it easy to combine sightseeing with St. Thomas’ fantastic shopping opportunities. Eighteenth century architecture provides the perfect backdrop for walking tours and shopping here in the "Duty Free Capital of the World." For a dose of history, visit Emancipation Park, the American-Caribbean History Museum, or Bluebeard the pirate's castle at Magen’s Bay. If tropical bliss is what you're after, head to any of Charlotte Amalie’s pristine beaches, where the warm water, white sands and palm trees will lull you into deep relaxation!

Basseterre, St Kitts, Saint Kitts and Nevis -  

St. Johns, Antigua -

Castries, St. Lucia - Watch natives fashion boats from gum trees, write postcards in a Creole cafe. Shop for black coral carvings and exquisite silk-screened fabrics.

Bridgetown, Barbados - An island some say is more British than Britain. Here, cricket is the national sport and afternoon tea goes without saying. But Barbados is true blue Caribbean as well, with classic sand beaches, and wild monkeys in the jungle.
