The ultimate goal of the 17th Annual Cerebrovascular Update: The Dawn of a New Era is to improve the delivery of care for stroke patients by improving the performance of practicing physicians as they care for patients with stroke related medical complications. The Course Directors, Pascal M.

This conference has been specially designed for practicing neurologists, neurosurgeons, emergency medicine physicians, critical care physicians, hospitalists, neuroradiologists, primary care physicians, internists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, case managers and rehabilitation therapists who treats a myriad of stroke related conditions and diseases in their practice.
