Aquifer is excited to announce our newest course, Aquifer Neurology, coming July 1, 2023. The 15 cases in the course will provide coverage of the clerkship guidelines endorsed by the American Academy of Neurology. Neurology is a key topic in all health professions education, and Aquifer is proud to grow our content library to better serve our programs, faculty and learners.

Neurologic disorders are common and can be associated with significant morbidity and mortality when not adequately diagnosed and treated. There is a critical shortage of neurologists in the U.S., and it is therefore essential that all future healthcare practitioners understand a framework to diagnose and treat essential common neurologic diagnoses.

“Aquifer Neurology represents the first peer-reviewed, evidence-based case-based learning modules that are available to students and faculty on essential topics in neurology,” notes Alexandra Hovaguimian, MD, Aquifer Neurology Lead Editor. “Programs and learners will benefit from a standardized neurology clinical curriculum directed by national guidelines and experts. The cases provide realistic and practical approaches to prepare future clinicians to recognize and diagnose common neurologic conditions in adults and children. ”

Case Development & Topics

Aquifer Neurology cases take only 15-20 minutes to complete, providing concise but thorough coverage for just-in-time learning on or off the wards, and a perfect launching point for facilitated group learning sessions.

The 15 cases will cover:

  • Epilepsy
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Myasthenia gravis and myopathy
  • Parkinson disease and essential tremor
  • Acute spinal cord dysfunction and Guillain-Barré syndrome
  • Polyneuropathy
  • Floppy infant: spinal muscular atrophy and developmental regression
  • Coma
  • Headache and migraine
  • Stroke and transient ischemic attack
  • Vertigo
  • Dementia
  • Headache and brain tumor
  • Neuroradiology – trauma
  • Neuroradiology – vascular and HIV

Each case will include self-assessment questions at the end that ask students to apply what they’ve learned with different patient vignettes. The case content will serve to better equip learners with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to provide patient-centered care to their communities.

Aquifer Neurology will be available by subscription for the 2023-24 subscription year, beginning July 1, 2023.
