Courses

The Department of Neuroscience provides instruction in human anatomy, histology, cytology,   embryology, and neuroscience designed for students in the medical, dental, and allied health science professions and for undergraduate preprofessional   students. Elective courses are offered for advanced students and residents. The department also maintains strong research, graduate, and postdoctoral   programs in the anatomical sciences with a special emphasis on neuroscience. The graduate, research, and teaching programs provide the academic background for students pursuing careers as faculty members in the basic medical sciences. The department's faculty members also offer an M.D./Ph.D. program   and other opportunities for health science students to participate in basic   medical science research programs.

The teaching philosophy of the Neuroscience Department is to provide current and clinically relevant content and concepts in the anatomical sciences for all health science students. Research activities enhance the teaching programs and provide regular and important contributions to a better understanding of the   basic science aspects of human health problems. Teaching methods are selected to enhance the development of lifelong learning and problem-solving skills.   These methods include large-group interactive sessions, small-group teaching, computer-assisted learning programs, and video technology.

Neuroscience assumes the primary responsibilities for instruction in the Human Structure and Basic Neuroscience Blocks of the first year of the medical curriculum. Faculty members from surgery, diagnostic radiology, pathology, physiology, neurology, and psychiatry contribute to the planning and teaching of these integrated curriculum components.

The official department course listings may be found on the UK Registrar's website.
