This Teaching Syllabus is an effort to have an accessible source of basic Pediatric Neurology information for all interested learners of Pediatric Neurology. This syllabus will be updated, edited, and linked to other Web sites that to offer information and insight into Pediatric Neurologic Medicine. This is a starting point for a Web based reference to Pediatric Neurology for those taking the Emory Pediatric Neurology Rotation. This is not a substitute for a Pediatric Neurology Textbook. This web guide will provide an outline of topics with key points to assist in further study.

Pediatric Neurology Education
The Web-browser based format allows publication on the web so that an individual user can see what is available for review and also track what has been reviewed. The initial pages will be mostly text to speed downloading and provide basic information. Links to subsequent pages will add further details and depth of information for the more advanced learner and incorprate increasingly complex images and graphics. The ultimate goal (dream) is to develop some web interactive features that may allow surveys and data tabulation of input on aspects of Pediatric Neurology.
This teaching syllabus is intended as web-based collection of basic Pediatric Neurology information to be accessed by interested learners. This is not a substitute for or offer to provide Pediatric Neurologic care. Links from these web pages are provided to expand the content of this syllabus and to offer varied opinions about Pediatric Neurology issues. The author(s) in no way take responsibility for the ever changing content of the links or changes in medical facts and opinions that develop over time. Feedback is desired and will be reviewed, incorporated and updated as appropriate.
