Clerkship suggested readings

It is very important to read about your patients' disorders to reinforce your knowledge. The following are excellent references:

  • Adams and Victors' Principles of Neurology (Ropper and Samuels, eds) is a standard in neurology; it is easy to read, and covers basic signs and symptoms of neurologic illness. In addition to the required readings above, you may find other chapters very useful. Access to the textbook is available online free of charge through the University of South Alabama Biomedical LIbrary website. If you are off-campus you will need your J-number to access this.
  • Clinical Neurology (Simon, et al) is a good brief synopsis of neurology and can be used an an alternate reference for this clerkship.
