Neil Sims has major roles in the teaching, coordination and curriculum development in the initial block of the Graduate Entry Medical Program and the neuroscience topics for the Bachelor of Medical Science and other courses.
In the medical course, Neil Sims has been centrally involved in teaching that (i) promotes an understanding of the essentials of biochemistry, and particularly metabolic biochemistry, and their relevance to medicine; (ii) assists students with limited backgrounds in biomedical science to understand key concepts in cellular biology and biochemistry that underpin many aspects of their subsequent studies. These goals have been met through involvement in the design and delivery of PBL cases, lectures, interactive workshops and a biochemistry elective.
His neuroscience teaching aims to develop an understanding of the cellular and molecular basis of nervous system function that can serve as a basis for understanding complex behaviours and the causes and consequences of disease.
