NEUR 790 CLIN RSCH ELECTIVE 4 Credit Hours

ELECTIVE

This elective offers students an opportunity to work under close mentorship from our faculty on clinical neurology research. There are many on-going and new projects available at all times. The student would be able to learn basic knowledge on clinical research. The learning program would be designed between the mentor and the student and then approved by the Elective Director (Dr. Torres). If you would like to participate in this opportunity, please contact your choice of the Neurological Sciences faculty listed below. If you are not sure with whom you would like to work, please contact Student Coordinator, Arianne Marcoux to set up a preliminary meeting with the Clerkship Director, Dr. Torres to discuss your interests and review possible options. Previous rotating students have been able to get abstracts accepted in National and International meetings, and present their posers, and even publish articles. Therefore, we feel that this opportunity would help students interested in pursuing a career in any of the neuro-related residencies, including Neurology, Neurosurgery, Neuroradiology, Neuropathology, etc. This elective offers students an opportunity to work with faculty members in clinical research of neurological diseases and to participate in new or ongoing research projects.
