New Non-clinical Elective in Neurology

June 12, 2023

This year-long elective, NAdvanced eXperience for Outstanding Neurology Students (AXONS), provides mentorship and exposure to careers in neurology to fourth- and fifth-year MD students. Students will participate in monthly group meetings and periodic mentorship meetings throughout the year, as well as engage in a scholarly activity on their own time. Meetings will address the skills necessary for scholarly work in neurology, various aspects of applying for neurology residency, and information regarding careers in neurology.

Participating students will be matched with near-peer as well as faculty mentors to assist in their residency/career preparation. In addition, students will have the opportunity to participate in clerkship educational activities and develop their skills as clinician educators. Jeffrey Dewey, MD, MHS, assistant professor of neurology; associate program director, Neurology Residency, directs the elective.
