Course on Clinical Neurophysiology
Our clinical neurophysiology program will provide you with a sound understanding of the theoretical principles and practical application of the commonly employed techniques in clinical neurophysiology, to enable your work in diagnostic and perioperative settings.
Clinical neurophysiology is a broad discipline, encompassing diagnostic services for people presenting with neurological dysfunction, systemic diseases and critical illnesses, as well as the provision of intraoperative monitoring of the nervous system during at-risk procedures.
This program is designed for practising and trainee anaesthetists, neurologists, neurophysiology scientists and technologists, and offers a structured educational program to complement your workplace experience. This unique postgraduate course is delivered mostly online, with some intensive face-to-face teaching sessions including practical experience in simulated diagnostic and perioperative settings.
The program is taught by expert anaesthetists, neurologists and neurophysiology scientists from Australia and the US. There is flexibility in the choice of units of study: you can choose to pursue diagnostic or intraoperative units or a mix of the two.
