Welcome! We are glad you are interested in the Graduate Program in Neuroscience at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University. The program offers coursework and research experience from both a basic research and applied clinical perspective. Students participating in this program will learn neuroscience fundamentals through the exploration of different neural systems.
Rotations through both basic science research labs and the clinical mentoring environment in the hospital allow for better understanding of how both perspectives interact to provide insight into the comprehension and treatment of neurological disease. Completion of the program requirements will lead to a PhD degree with a major in Neuroscience, reflecting the unique, broadly based training that student candidates will receive.
Graduates of the program have achieved postdoctoral and faculty positions at prestigious universities, such as the Mayo Clinic, Duke University, Cornell University, Vanderbilt University and others.
