The Medical Neuroscience minor through the Medical Neuroscience Graduate Program at Stark Neurosciences Research Institute consists of 12 credit hours. A minimum of six credit hours must be neuroscience-focused, including, but not limited to, neuroscience courses supported by the Medical Neuroscience Program, as well as other neuroscience and brain-related courses offered within Indiana University School of Medicine and IUPUI.
To be admitted to the PhD minor in Medical Neuroscience, you must be a currently-enrolled doctoral student in good academic standing in any IU or IUPUI school.
Plan of Study
No required courses. Students without any didactic neuroscience exposure are strongly encouraged to take Foundations of Neuroscience (GRDM-G780). As new neuroscience courses become available, they may be considered for credit toward the minor. The Medical Neuroscience Training and Advisory Committee must approve any additional courses not present on this list. Courses used for a student’s PhD minor cannot also be used towards the PhD major, and vice versa. This PhD minor does not require a qualifying exam.
