Students essentially function as residents in studying at first hand the neuropathological material under the guidance and supervision of a faculty member, and participate in the regular weekly microscopic conference in which current neuropathological material and consultation case material submitted from outside centers are reviewed and discussed.
Additional projects in clinicopathologic correlation and/or experimental neuropathology may be possible during this rotation by pre-arrangement.
