Complete NeuroGrad

To obtain a PhD degree in neuroscience from the Graduate School at the Faculty of Health and Medical Science, the graduate students must fulfill the criteria prescribed by the Faculty in addition to the activities encompassed in the graduate program in neuroscience.

It is highly recommended to participate in the various NeuroGrad activities, workshops, seminars, and courses. It is mandatory to participate in at least two NeuroGrad Winter Schools during the graduate studies. Enrolled graduate students who fail to do so will be awarded a PhD degree in Health and Medical Sciences rather than in Neuroscience.

NeuroGrad activities:
  • Annual NeuroGrad Winter School (mandatory)
  • General and specialized courses on basal and clinical neuroscience
  • Courses on transferable skills (poster presentations, communication in academia, etc.)
  • Neuroscience seminar series, "Neuroseminars series"
  • Networking events including workshops on topics relevant to graduate students
