New Ways to Learn Neurology
First-year College of Medicine students engaged in an experiential neurology course led by Dr. Robert Norgren. Learners viewed holographic brain anatomy and engaged with interactive touch walls and 3D work benches before heading to the simulation surgical units for conducting dissections.
