    Thank you for your interest in the one year full time (2 semesters) online on-demand clinical neurology degree program of National University of Medical Sciences. Our Admissions department is eager to help you in any way we can. We invite you to contact NUMSS and ask us any questions you may have. All Clinical Neurology classes are online & in English. The lectures are available on-demand online through internet or they may be watched on a TV screen by using a portable hard drive that could be shipped to students. Campus attendance is not required for the MSc (CN) program and students from every corner of the world are eligible to apply and study at the comfort of their homes. However students who wish to practice practical techniques under supervision of a clinician have the choice of attending the optional week long practical techniques review at Madrid, Spain or Toronto, Canada, once per semester. The practical lab is not part of the MSc (CN) program and students can graduate without attending the lab. Attendance is not mandatory.


    Why Study Clinical Neurology?

    This master’s degree program will enable students to apply the fundamentals of neuroanatomy and physiology to better understand the clinical features of patients with neurological disease. An integrated approach links recent research advances to cutting edge management in the clinic. With an ageing population, neurological diseases represent an increasing economic burden to society and a cause of much suffering to patients.

    The MSC in Clinical Neurology program offered by NUMSS provides specialised training in the clinical and scientific basis of a wide range of neurological disorders. The programme will equip students with a deep understanding of disorders of the nervous system and provides an excellent basis for a clinical or research career in the field as neurologists.

    Health practitioners such as osteopaths, chiropractors & physical therapists who specialize in clinical neurology to become neurologists focus on improving and/or restoring the areas of the nervous system which have become dysfunctional through trauma, diet, stress, posture, etc. These neurologists diagnose and treat a variety of neurological disorders including vertigo, lags in child development, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, peripheral neuropathies, Dystonia, Parkinson's and autism. They also provide rehabilitation for stroke patients as well as treatment for back and neck pain, severe headaches and TMJ.
