First Conference of Neuropedia For Students (CNS-I)
Jordan University of Science and Technology – King Abdullah University Hospital
25-27 | August | 2022
The Conference of NeuroPedia for Students (CNS) is an opportunity to gather medical students, interns, residents, and specialists all around Jordan and the globe to meet, exchange ideas, learn from the various sessions held in the event, and hopefully, get inspired to become the future physicians, leaders, and advocates of the world.
Dead Sea – Jordan
The CNS I is the first and only Neuro-related, Student-based scientific congress. It aims to be the highest quality and most internationally accessible neuro-related event possible as it will be the beginning of the annually held Conference of
the NeuroPedia. The CNS is not just any regular congress, it is a non-profit congress made up of students that aims to promote student research and the international exchange of it.
The CNS I is under the supervision of the Neurosurgery Department at the King Abdullah University Hospital – Jordan University of Science and Technology and in cooperation with the Society of Jordanian Neurological Surgeons.
Throughout our one-day congress, we offer a stimulating venue for student research exchange and allow students to broaden their social and scientific networks. Our scientific program includes different research from students which are presented as plenary and poster presentations, all in front of a professional audience. Along with these student sessions, there will be fascinating keynote lectures and various hands-on workshops conducted by national and international Speakers / Trainers. For this years’ edition, we will make sure that all activities planned will be within the confines of the COVID-19 confinements.
First, to introduce the NeuroPedia platform and its work to students at medical schools in Jordan and the regional area. Therefore, this conference edition is entitled “Your Gate to Neuro World”.
Second, to invite more medical staff involved in the Neuroscience field to take part in the writing process that NeuroPedia offers for students.
Third, to provide medical students an opportunity to learn vital skills through training sessions like communication skills, project management, leadership skills, and much more.
Fourth, to shed the light on the trendiest important medical topics in the neuro field throughout the keynote lectures.
Fifth, to give the opportunity for medical students from different universities in Jordan to share their experiences via plenary sessions and poster presentations.
Sixth, to give medical students the chance to meet specialized mentors to get mentorship for their current research projects, and to receive multiple research opportunities in various fields including but not limited to neuroscience.
Why “Your Gate to Neuro World”?
What is Neurology?
Neurology deals with the anatomy, functions, and organic disorders of nerves and the nervous system, which includes the brain. Neurologists are doctors who work together to study, diagnose and treat conditions of the brain and nervous system.
What is Neuroscience?
Neuroscience is the study of your brain and nervous system—which determine every aspect of how we interact with the world. Biology, anatomy, human behavior, and other disciplines are all used in neuroscience.
What is Neurosurgery?
Most people think of neurosurgery as brain surgery — but it is much more!
It is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of patients with injury to, or diseases/disorders of the brain, spinal cord and spinal column, and peripheral nerves within all parts of the body. The specialty of neurosurgical care includes both adult and pediatric patients. Dependent upon the nature of the injury or disease a neurological surgeon may provide surgical and/or non-surgical care.
What is Psychiatry?
Psychiatry is the medical specialty devoted to the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of mental disorders. These include various maladaptation’s related to mood, behavior, cognition, and perceptions. See glossary of psychiatry.
Why Neurosciences are important?
By learning about the nervous system, we can better understand how our minds and bodies work. Every day we are making new discoveries about the nervous system and how it impacts our lives. These discoveries can be used to create new technologies, medical advancements, and even new laws to enhance our lives and wellbeing.
How does work done by Neurologists help people?
Neurologists are using groundbreaking therapies to help treat diseases of the nervous system. Breakthroughs in neurological technology and treatments are developing at an incredible pace—the ability to treat neurological conditions has expanded rapidly in the past decades and will exponentially increase in the years to come. As a neurologist, you will play a central role in improving and fundamentally changing the lives of millions of people.
What is the role of the Neurosurgeon?
Neurosurgeons provide the operative and non-operative management (i.e., prevention, diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, critical care and rehabilitation) of neurological disorders. Because neurosurgeons have extensive training in the diagnosis of all neurological disease, emergency room doctors, neurologists, internists, family practitioners, and osteopaths often call upon them for consultations.
What is the role of a Psychiatrist?
A psychiatrist is a specialist medical doctor who assesses and treats patients with mental health problems. Psychiatrists often work in collaboration with general practitioners and other health professionals to best meet the mental health and emotional needs of patients.
What is the role of a Neuroscientist?
Neuroscientists focus primarily on the study and research of the nervous system. The nervous system is composed of the brain, spinal cord and nerve cells. Studies of the nervous system may focus on the cellular level or instead may focus on a systemic level as in behavioural or cognitive studies. A significant portion of nervous system studies is devoted to understanding the diseases that affect the nervous system, like multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
Thus, here in our First Conference of NeuroPedia for Students, we aim to provide students with knowledge, experience, connections, updates and opportunities to make a difference in neuro fields.
