Foundations of Neuroscience (Bootcamp)

The goal of the Foundations of Neuroscience course is to develop a detailed knowledge of neuroscience, neuroanatomy and neuropharmacology for neurology and neurosurgery residents. Extensive and detailed correlation with clinical syndromes and neuroimaging is stressed. This is a three-week course attended by our PGY2 and PGY4 residents.
