Students will couple in-class discussions with a variety of extracurricular outings to locations that illustrate France’s role in early Neurology (e.g. Hôpital de la Salpêtrière) and its current research interests. In addition, students will have access to the food, culture and art of Paris, including visits to Versailles, the Loire valley, and Paris museums.
Classroom Instruction: Required readings will be given to students prior to arrival in Paris to expedite classroom preparation. Classroom instruction will be conducted three hours a day for five days a week (Monday-Friday) at the Accent facility in Paris, with excursions planned for many afternoons and some Fridays.
