Professor Matthew Kiernan, President of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Neurologists (ANZAN), discusses the clinical neurophysiology coursework offered at Sydney Medical School.
The University of Sydney offers unique postgraduate degrees in clinical neurophysiology. Clinical neurophysiology is a broad discipline, encompassing diagnostic services for patients presenting with neurological dysfunction, systemic diseases and critical illnesses, as well as intraoperative monitoring of the nervous system during at-risk procedures.
Offered by the Sydney Medical School, the recently launched clinical neurophysiology courses are suitable for neurology and anaesthetic trainees and practitioners, and clinical scientists and technicians interested in developing and improving their knowledge and skills.
Professor Matthew Kiernan, President Australian and New Zealand Association of Neurologists (ANZAN), said the coursework will contribute to clinical neurophysiology training and improve the teaching and training of neurophysiology.
It’s a great development for the University of Sydney to launch an official training program in clinical neurophysiology. On behalf of ANZAN, it’s a great initiative and we hope it’s going to be useful for everyone doing the course
