C16 - Resident Basic Science II: Neuropathology

Event Time: Saturday April 22, 2017 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Topic(s): Research Methodology, Education, and History
Director(s): J. Clay Goodman MD, FAAN
Description: Neuropathology is a rapidly and continuously evolving discipline encompassing basic, translational, and clinical neuroscience. A thorough understanding of the basics of neuropathology permits much deeper insight into mechanisms and manifestations of neurologic disease and provides a basis for more complete understanding of neuroimaging and laboratory studies. Faculty will provide a fast-paced, visually oriented overview of central nervous system neuropathology including tumors, demyelinating diseases, infections, cerebrovascular disease, toxic/metabolic conditions, neurotrauma, and neurodegenerative disease. The images shown during the program will be contained in the slide and written syllabi which will also contain substantial supplementary material. This program complements Resident Basic Science I: Neuroanatomy—All the Lesions and Resident Basic Science III: Neuropharmacology, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to recognize common gross, histological, and molecular features of central nervous system disorders, and be able to understand cellular and gross neuropathology in relationship to neurologic disease mechanisms, diagnosis, progression, laboratory studies, imaging, and therapeutic opportunities.
CME Credits: 3.5
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care
