Participants will visit each station for individualized instruction and troubleshooting with an expert on these essential examination skills.
Completion Message: Participants should understand the techniques used in performing the neuro-ophthalmic and neuro-otology examinations, including afferent, pupil, efferent, and vestibular components.
