Overview: The intent of our neuroscience curriculum is to introduce and reinforce key concepts in the neurosciences in a way that is clinically relevant and allows for a more complete understanding of the disorders and treatments that we utilize in Psychiatry. We structure our courses in a way that builds meaningfully from a foundational understanding of basic neuroscience concepts to a more in-depth understanding of advanced concepts through the course of residency training.
