Clerkship & Electives

Alpert Medical School core curricula in neurology

First and second year medical students learn about the nervous system as part of the Doctoring course. These lectures are recorded live at the medical school and available for residents and rotators to view online at any time to brush up on basic neuroscience. They can be accessed by reaching out to the clerkship coordinator

Third and fourth year medical students experience neurology and psychiatry as part of the 8 week Clinical Neurosciences. Please see the Medical Student's Guide to the Vascular Neurology Wards created by two of our Sub-I's, Neesha Nama and Kwame Adjepong. For a description of all rotations on neurology, please see the Brown Neurology Resident Handbook
