While teaching on rounds is an important part of a resident's education, in-person didactics hold equal value.  With our newly restructured teaching series, we are providing our residents with the opportunities to learn from and interact with our core faculty and fellows through a wide variety of conferences, lectures, and seminars covering a range of topics in both basic and clinical neuroscience.  In order to emphasize the importance of learning, all resident didactic times are protected whereas our residents do not have inpatient responsibilities and have cross-cover coverage.   Below you can find a sample week of resident didactics:
