Neurology staff and residents are frequently involved in the education of medical students, particularly as it pertains to small group clinical skills sessions and OSCEs.

Clerkship (Years 3-4)

Clerks are invited to do selectives and electives in Neurology. Under the supervision of faculty and residents, medical students gain a broad range of experience in both outpatient and inpatient settings. Clerks typically spend half of their time doing clinics and the other half on the acute ward service or consultation service. They are also invited to participate in call with a resident and the academic activities of the Division of Neurology and the Department of Medicine.

Throughout the year, the MUN SIGN Executive organize events to foster interest in neurology among their colleagues, provide opportunities for learners to obtain residency and career advice, and to network with people in the field.
