Uitgebreide vaknaam Language Testing during Awake Brain Surgery
Leerdoelen Competencies and skills that are needed for the labor market are trained simultaneously with knowledge acquisition throughout the course. EMCL+-students can practice their skills in testing language impaired children and adults during mock testing sessions, they go on excursions to several labs and they attend an awake operation via a video-connection.
Omschrijving Over the last few years, the number of hospitals that use extensive language testing in brain tumour patients before, during and after surgery has increased and clinical linguists are needed to develop test materials and to test the patients. EMCL+ will fill the gap by training specialized clinical linguists in this field. It will be the first course worldwide on this area.
