Munich Brain Course
LMU Munich | Faculty of Medicine

Retrospect 2023

The first Munich Brain Course since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic took place on March 17th and 18th, 2023. The German part (Intensivkurs Neuroanatomie) and the English part (Munich Brain Course) ran in parallel. As in the past, not all neuroanatomical topics could be displayed in one course, so each year has its own focus.
