The UCSF Department of Neurosurgery is partnering with UCSF HealthLink for an exciting day of Neuroscience demos and experiences for children of Neurosurgery faculty, residents, and staff. HealthLink is a UCSF professional schools student organization that inspires and support high school students from local communities that are underrepresented in the health professions through mentorship, workshops and hands-on activities in the health sciences.
This year we will be offering neuroscience and neurophysiology workshops (anatomy, clinical cases, senses, reflexes etc), facilitated by UCSF Medical/Dental/Pharmacy students, as well as an OR demo, facilitated by UCSF Neurosurgery as well as Anesthesia faculty. It will be a one hour session on neuroanatomy, clinical cases, and neuro exam demo, plus an additional one hour hands-on demo in the OR with models and equipment.
