The Vesalius Certificate in the Neurobiology of Education
The Vesalius Certificate is typically awarded through a four-course component of the MA in Anatomy & Neurobiology—Vesalius Program. Students typically start these courses after their first-year medical and graduate school courses.
The Vesalius Certificate is also available as part of the PhD program in Anatomy & Neurobiology and, with permission from the program director, to any student in the GMS program. For more information on how the program fits in with other degree programs see the Anatomy & Neurobiology Department site.
The certificate consists of four courses: one in educational neuroscience, one in the development of teaching skills in the biomedical sciences, followed by two practica courses that consist of one-on-one mentoring with experienced and award-winning faculty.
