Curriculum

Health Disparities in Neuroscience-related Disorders (HDND) MS Program at Wake Forest University


Wake Forest University Graduate School » Health Disparities in Neuroscience-related Disorders (HDND) MS Program

The program will include coursework, a thesis research project, mentoring, and career development. The product of this program will be a solid foundation in Neuroscience, Epidemiology and Biostatistics training and hands-on, practical research projects. Another goal is to interest students in a career choice in health disparity and to develop a love of neuroscience and understanding neurological disorders to motivate students to consider moving onto PhD and MD programs and careers addressing these important issues.
