Introduction and Goals
This clinical elective for senior residents is based predominantly at the 20 S. Park Neurology clinic and includes both clinic and electrodiagnostic procedures. The goal of this rotation is to provide residents who may have interest in exploring a general neurology private practice some exposure to a less hyper-specialized clinic environment that more closely approximates a general private practice clinic.
Objectives and Evaluation Matrix
As with all of the individual neurology rotations described in this section, the specific objectives of the continuity clinic are reflected in the entrustable professional activities and individual milestones listed below. These form the basis for the resident’s evaluation. (Please see the section End-of-Rotation Evaluations above for the list of milestone abbreviations).

|7||Describe the indications for, and the basic principles of, NCS and EMG||PC10, MK2|
|8||Clearly document and place orders in Health Link, and follow up on the results of tests as appropriate||SP4, IC4|
|Please grade the resident on any of the following milestones you were able to evaluate during this rotation:|

This rotation consists of 1-2 weeks of clinics and may be repeated. Below is an example schedule, subject to change depending on attending availability. In order to be scheduled for EMG clinics, the resident must have completed at least one month of Neuromuscular rotation.
An individualized schedule for the rotation will be emailed to the resident before the beginning of each rotation.
