CME Webcast Teaches on The Dizzy Patient

OSU Wexner Medical Center logo CME Webcast Teaches on The Dizzy Patient. On this webcast, we’ll be discussing the approach to a dizzy patient. For this, we’ve invited two vestibular experts. Dr. Desi Schoo is an otolaryngologist and physician-scientist at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center specializing in vestibular dysfunction and cranial base surgeries. He will lead us through a review of the vestibular system and approach to a patient with complaints of dizziness including advanced diagnostic testing and management. Matthew Bjelac is a board certified Neurologic physical therapist at Ohio State and vestibular team lead. Matt will discuss physical exam and screening tests as well as vestibular rehabilitation.
