The CNST is open to all medical students who have been accepted into the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and who have strong interest in pursuing a career in the clinical neurosciences.
In response to the tremendous advances that are being made in the neurosciences, the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine has developed the Clinical Neuroscience Track (CNST) for medical students to enhance their exposure to the neurosciences while pursuing traditional studies for the Doctor of Medicine degree. The CNST is aimed at training clinical neuroscientists who will eventually participate on the forefront of academic practice and research.
The program draws on the resources of the departments of Neurosurgery, Neurology, Ophthalmology, and Psychiatry, as well as the neurologically-oriented subspecialties in other departments, such as Pathology, Radiology, and Rehabilitation Medicine.
It consists of Clinical Conferences, Journal Club, mentoring, research opportunities, and specially designed Clinical Neuroscience courses.
