Teaching period

3rd semester

 

Learning outcomes

  • Comprehension of the basic methods to examine a patient with neurological pathosis,
  • The fundamental distinction of the Nervous System in executive kinetic mechanism, regulatory kinetic mechanism and sensorial part with the sensibilities it serves; the examination and discovery of pathology in the above,
  • Comprehension of the higher cortical functions of cognition, knowledge and speech and their disorders,
  • Verbal presentation skills development on subject units.

 

Teaching method

  • Power Point presentations,
  • Interactive sessions.

Assessment

Neurology’s assessment takes place in the end of the semester and has 2 examination periods. In case somebody fails in the 1st exam, they may take the 2nd. If they fail twice, they have to attend the module/subject again. The examination students take is consisted of open and closed type questions. Students have to achieve a result 5 out of 10 or higher to consider the subject passed. The examination’s duration is 2 hours. After passing the subject, the students are awarded with 6 ECTS credits.
