Student Interest Group in Neurology (SIGN)

Background and Purpose

Revived at WVU during the summer of 2005, SIGN functions as a network of over 150 chapters in medical schools throughout the United States and Canada. Our membership in SIGN is aimed at:

  • Fostering greater student interest in the field of Neurology
  • Promoting greater student awareness of opportunities in the field of Neurology
  • Providing students with opportunities to participate in activities related to the field of Neurology, including: discussions by Neurologists, patient presentations, and arranged shadowing of Neurologists in the workplace
  • Given the youth of our organization, we look forward to receiving any ideas or suggestions that all of our new members may be willing to contribute.

(For a free application to Medical Student Membership in the American Academy of Neurology, please see your SIGN officers at the beginning of the school year.)


  • Any student currently enrolled in the West Virginia University School of Medicine is eligible for membership.
  • SIGN will meet every other month during the school year, and more often if so necessary.
  • SIGN will be governed by an elected body of medical students that consists of a president and a vice president.
  • Officers will be elected at the last meeting of each year by the members of SIGN. The group may decide to have a Secretary, Treasurer and Service Chair at their discretion.
  • SIGN will work closely with a faculty sponsor in the Department of Neurology
