Vesalius Program (MS) and Vesalius Module (PhD)
The Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at Boston University School of Medicine is renowned for its excellence in biomedical teaching and its rigorous research programs. Our Masters in Science degree, also called the Vesalius program, is a nationally recognized program in which students are trained in both the biomedical sciences and in the principles of teaching in the biomedical sciences. We have produced a short video to provide an overview of the program.
Vesalius students take first year medical and graduate school courses to obtain a solid foundation in the biomedical sciences and in the principles of brain function. They will then use this rigorous environment to train to become an effective educator and as a testing bench to apply new and emerging ideas in the neurobiology of education. The Vesalius Program offers small advanced teaching courses combined with one-on-one mentoring with experienced and award winning faculty. By the time they graduate our students have extensive mentored teaching experience.
Graduates represent the next generation of educators who are not only skilled teachers and professors but have a thorough understanding of the application of neurological principles to education.
