The NeuroImaging Training Program (NITP) at UCLA was created in September of 2006, under the aegis of the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, with funding from the National Institutes of Health. It is premised on the view that the scientific leaders of tomorrow are those who have the ability to create the tools they need to make the discoveries they seek.
Students in the NITP generally will complete a year of graduate training in the Neurosciences, including fundamentals of Neuroanatomy, Systems Neuroscience, Neurophysiology and/or Cognitive Neuroscience. Their second year of graduate training will be an intensive program in the tools of neuroimaging, including acquisition, data processing, analysis and experimental design.

As described in more detail in the Curriculum Summary , the NITP adds additional coursework in the first year and requires a second year of imaging-specific classwork.
