Official Neuroscience Program Handbook

Click here for a PDF copy of the official program handbook. This book contains information on the structure of the program, requirements and guidelines, contact information for faculty and students, course descriptions, university services, faculty research interests, and much much more.

Much of what you might need to know about the neuro program is contained within this handbook. You can also see the student-written guidebook (below) for extended information and tips about the various stages of being a neuroscience Ph.D. student at Yale. If, like Bono, you still haven't found what you're looking for, contact Carol Russo and she can probably tell you what you need to know.

The Compass

The Yale GSA (Graduate Student Assembly) has a series of information about life at Yale, including practicalities of health insurance and tax, favorite eating spots around New Haven and practical advice about transportation and housing.
