UT Health Medical Students put together this handout for perspective students, like you,  to be able to explore the amazing world of Neuroscience. Please visit the link below to see how amazing the brain and mind really are!!! Additionally, the students gathered an inter-professional panel  to discuss  their various healthcare career plans, including pros and cons, and  give an example of how each would work in caring for a patient who has suffered a stroke. It is all great “food for thought” as you discover what your own career calling is!
