The Department of Neurology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center offers two clinical electives for fourth year medical students from United States LCME approved medical schools.

Neurology (NE 302.02)
This is a combined inpatient/ consultative service for Neurology. Students have an opportunity to evaluate and work up a variety of commonly seen neurological conditions including stroke, seizures, altered mental status, multiple sclerosis and movement disorders. The team consists of neurology and medicine residents, 3rd year medical students and a full time faculty member. Sub Interns will be assigned their own patients with close supervision. Students will take part in multiple didactic sessions including weekly lectures, seminars, and grand round presentations. Students will see patients in the outpatient clinic setting one day per week.

Neuro-ICU (NE 300.01)
The Neurocritical Care Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical center is renowned for its expertise in clinical care and clinical research of neurological and neurosurgical patients. The Neurocritical Care program is housed within a closed unit model, where the neurointensivist is responsible for full medical as well as neurological management. There is a close and collegial working relationship with the Neurosurgical team. The hospital is a Level I trauma center, as well as being one of the few national certified Comprehensive Stroke Centers with an active neuro-interventional program. Students will be integrated into the team and expected to be responsible for the evaluation and management of post-operative Neurosurgical patients, post-Acute Stroke intervention patients, and patients with fulminant central and peripheral neurologic system failure.

Rotations are four weeks in length. Students must have completed a Neurology clerkship prior to taking these elective courses. We accept applicants through VSAS.
