Clinical Neuroscience Society

Clinical Neuroscience Society


Are you considering a career in Neurology, Neurosurgery, Neuroradiology, Neuroscience, Psychology or Psychiatry? Or are you just curious about the enigma that is the human brain? If so, the Cardiff University Clinical Neuroscience Society is for you! 


The main aim of CUCNS is to encourage interest in one of the most complex subjects in Medicine. We provide multiple teaching sessions throughout the year to support cases and pre-exam revision, lead by Neurologists and Neurosurgeons, as well as our very own students.

This year we are looking at collaborating with the anatomy centre, to get up close and personal to the human brain and nervous system, as well as putting on film evenings, competitions and conferences with guest speakers. We have a great relationship with the Neurology and Neurosurgery Department of UHW, therefore clinical experience, education and career advice is another benefit of joining the society.

We are also lucky to have connections with CUBRIC, Cardiff’s new high-tech brain research centre, which is working on some of the most cutting edge research in Neuroscience today.  Therefore, for those who are interested in research, science, or are just curious to learn more, CUCNS is a great society to be part of.
