Clinical Neuroscience Training Program

Weekly Seminar Series

During the Fall and Spring semesters, students attend seminars. Lunch is provided and the atmosphere is informal. Seminars are in a variety of formats and emphasize inspiration as well as education.

  • Clinical Conferences: Faculty lead discussions about clinical cases that span several disciplines to illustrate important, complex, and integrative aspects of brain function in health and disease.
  • Careers in Neuroscience seminars: Faculty and outside physicians discuss the academic, training and life choices they have made in their careers and share what excites them in their current activities.
