Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Neurological examination (NE) is a key part of practice for many doctors. UK students learn NE from a variety of specialty tutors and often find it difficult. This article suggests one way of introducing NE interactively with students in their first clinical year supplementary to clerking patients. The content presupposes the author's choices about core elements and techniques of NE largely in the absence of explicit evidence. Arguably there needs to be greater consensus over a core NE, appropriate to modern practice, to provide more explicit guidance for medical schools.
