Student Comments

“The neuroscience program covered the basics of brain anatomy, as well as the somatosensory system and neurological disorders. [Our teacher] was engaging and open to answering our questions. I enjoyed our field trips to the Boston Children’s Hospital and the VA Hospital because they gave insight into different neuroscience fields.”

The program was very hands on allowing me to not only absorb the information through lectures, but also while applying it through simulations. I LOVED this program.”
