Background and Overview:
The Texas Brain and Spine Institute (TBSI) is a neuroscience center of excellence associated with CHI St. Joseph Health and Texas A&M HSC, College of Medicine. Participants in TBSI include physicians, educators, scientists and other practitioners whose goals are to improve and expand clinical services for patients with neurological diseases and to contribute to research and teaching through collaborations with the Texas A&M System. Consistent with all of these goals is the formation of the TBSI Graduate Student Fellowship in Neuroscience. The TBSI fellowship is designed to attract and to retain the very best students into the neuroscience program and to foster the educational mission of TBSI. The fellowship is a one-year graduate student stipend offered to highly-qualified, advanced graduate students in the third or fourth year of graduate training.
