Overview: This is a sample list of NNCI modules recommended for child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship programs in need of a comprehensive neuroscience curriculum. This list does not include all NNCI modules with possible relevance; for a more complete list of what the NNCI offers, please see the NNCI Modules by Topic document.
The entire set could be used as a stand-alone neuroscience course, comprising approximately 12-15 hours of didactic content. Alternatively, individual sessions could be integrated into pre-existing didactics as supplementary material. Sessions originally designed as classroom activities can be adapted to self-study by utilization of the available facilitator’s guides. Some modules are listed under multiple subheadings.
