Specialist Certificate in Clinical Research (Neuroscience)

What will I study?


The Specialist Certificate in Clinical Research (Neuroscience) is offered through two subjects, each delivered intensively over a week at Austin Hospital, Heidelberg, and taught by a team with expertise across the breadth of clinical neuroscience research.

Please note: The delivery mode for subjects will be online.

In the first subject, Clinical Neuroscience Research, you will develop a foundation in research methods and the translation of clinical research into practice. You will also discuss current research questions in areas such as epilepsy, intellectual disability and autism, stroke and multiple sclerosis.

In the second subject, Neuroimaging for Clinical Research, you will learn about cutting-edge human imaging techniques, the principles of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and explore new frontiers in multi-disciplinary clinical neuroscience research.
