Student Interest Group in Neurology

Category: Interest Group

The Student Interest Group in Neurology (SIGN) fosters medical student interest in Neurology by providing opportunities for students to interact with faculty members and explore potential career paths. Our primary activities include lunch seminars in which students are able to interact with faculty from different neurological disciplines, dinners at the homes of our faculty members, and a formal mentorship program. SIGN also collaborates with the undergraduate Neuroscience Majors Union group to encourage medical neuroscience interest in undergraduates as well as developing mentorship skills in medical students.

Some of our events this year include:

  • Chair’s Dinner with Dr. Richard O’Brien
  • Museum as Laboratory- Neuroscience in the Public Sphere Lecture
  • Neurological Exam and Procedure Day
  • Emerging Therapies in Pediatric Neuromuscular Disease
  • SIGN Intro Dinner and Faculty Career Talk
  • Dementia Panel with Geriatrics Interest Group
