Neurological Sciences faculty contribute substantially in teaching and mentoring medical students throughout the Vermont Integrated Curriculum and during the neurology clinical core curriculum, senior selective programs and acting internships. The Neurology Residency training program and four Fellowship training programs have successfully recruited excellent residents and fellows. Graduate and undergraduate students can select department faculty as mentors in laboratories to complete projects and degree programs.
The Department is actively involved in medical student education across all four years of the curriculum. In the Foundations Level, faculty participate in the Human Structure and Function, Neural Science, and Cell and Molecular Biology courses. During the Clinical Clerkship Level, students rotate through a three-week Neurology Clerkship clinical experience with an additional one-week bridge of Neurology-Psychiatry based clinical didactics. Senior selective offerings include research opportunities, Acting Internship inpatient experience, and subspecialty neurology offerings.

Faculty have a significant role in the education of undergraduates, teaching Anatomy and Physiology and Neuroanatomy during the academic year and several courses during the summer. See COURSE LIST for a full list of courses.
Summer Neuroscience Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SNURF)
These fellowships offer an exciting opportunity to join state-of-the-art laboratories and discover the world of neuroscience research. Students participate in investigations of how the nervous system develops, functions and repairs itself after injury; get hands-on training in molecular, cellular, anatomical, physiological approaches; and gain valuable experience before entering graduate or medical school.

Community Medical School
Designed to share the medical learning experience with our greater community, the Community Medical School is a series of weekly lectures held twice yearly. The topics are chosen for their relevance and presented by College of Medicine faculty experienced with presenting scientific information in an engaging, easy-to-understand manner. Neurological Science faculty present regularly, visit Community Medical School to learn more.
