The Division of Neurogeriatrics teaches all content concerning neurodegeneration and dementia, movement disorders including Parkinson's disease, pain syndromes and degenerative and radicular syndromes related to spinal disorders. The instructors are integrated into practical teaching of neurological knowledge and skills and are part of the interdivisional faculty.


Research-led teaching

Research-led teaching is a special concern at the division since it permits us to spark the interest of junior scientists in our main research areas and to provide students with their first impressions of scientific work and appropriate skills. We offer diploma theses in the areas dementia, cerebral aging and movement disorders. In most cases, it is possible to work with existing data sets. Through research-led teaching, our division aims to increase knowledge through original research papers and to accompany students until their publication appears in a scientific journal in the neurosciences. It does not focus on reviews. Unsolicited diploma thesis applications to the division's management are welcome.


Postgraduate training

The wide range of professional development opportunities at the Medical University of Graz is directed at a variety of occupational groups in the fields of medicine, science and research, nursing and health services. Most of the professional development courses can be completed while the participant is regularly employed and provide him/her with a valuable additional qualification.
