Overview: We are a small academic program with 6 residents per year. We do have access to faculty with expertise in neuroscience and are in a continual process of trying to expose residents to those resources in a way which can be meaningful to residents (who crave clinical connections in the material) and a positive experience for faculty (who are accustomed to more scientifically-oriented audiences). The NNCI materials have served to augment our neuroscience curriculum with learner-centric, clinically-connected modules.
