School of Medicine Course & Clerkship Pages


The Neurosciences course will describe and relate neuroanatomical structures to their functional characteristics in normal nervous systems and disease etiology. The integrated perspective presented in Neurosciences provides a framework for subsequent courses in the preclinical and clinical curriculum. Lectures on basic neuroanatomy and physiology and disease etiology are accompanied by related wet labs and small groups module sessions.
