Welcome to the Department of Neurosciences

Neurosciences encompasses the fields of Neurology, Neurosurgery, Physical Medicine (PM&R) and Neuroradiology. Students will spend the most time on neurology, a field that encompasses diseases and injuries of the central nervous system and peripheral nerves. Neurologic diseases can affect individuals of all ages. On neurology rotations, students should anticipate the opportunity to see a wide variety of clinical conditions. Exposure to neurology is particularly helpful to students in terms of honing their skills in creating a differential diagnosis of possible medical conditions.
