Clinical Neuroscience Scholars Program
The O’Donnell Clinical Neuroscience Scholars Program provides outstanding junior faculty with mentoring in brain disease-related disciplines so that they can become nationally recognized experts in their areas of interest.
The program supports both faculty recruitment and ongoing mentorship to promote enduring excellence in state-of-the-art, personalized, and empathetic patient care.
Each scholar will receive $1 million to be used over five years. Each year, $100,000 will be used for salary support and $100,000 will be used for scholarly work, which may include teaching or patient-centered research.
A master clinician will serve as a senior mentor to each O’Donnell Scholar. Scholars and mentors will be paired within their shared clinical specialty.
Multidisciplinary Mentorship Team
Each scholar will be supported by a specialty-specific clinician, alongside a multidisciplinary mentorship team to increase professional development.
The NSTP will offer opportunities for fellows to interact with clinicians and observe patients firsthand, providing them with a unique perspective on brain disease.
