Geisseler, Olivia A; Bigi, Sandra; Baumann, Philipp S; Bölsterli, Bigna K; El Rahal, Amir; d'Honincthun, Peggy; Hainc, Nicolin; Hench, Jürgen; Kurmann, Rebekka; Piguet, Camille; Reimann, Regina R; Stienen, Martin N; Tyndall, Anthony; Sokolov, Arseny A (2018). The SFCNS Young Clinical Neuroscientists Network Cultivating ties across clinical neuroscience disciplines. Clinical and Translational Neuroscience:Epub ahead of print.

Abstract

Interdisciplinary cooperation and interaction have grown extremely important and will soon become indispensable in clinical neuroscience. The constantly increasing degree of specialization may further compartmentalize the different clinical neuroscience disciplines, potentially altering a unified identity in the field. In 2016, the Swiss Federation of Clinical Neuro-Societies (SFCNS) encouraged the creation of the Young Clinical Neuroscientists (YouCliN) Network bringing together juniors from all specialties united in the SFCNS – that is, biological psychiatry, neurology, neuropathology, neuropediatrics, neuropsychology, neuroradiology and neurosurgery. The main YouCliN mission is to cultivate an interdisciplinary spirit among clinical neuroscience trainees – in order for them to be prepared to face future challenges in a shoulder-to-shoulder manner. Moreover, the YouCliN represents junior interests in current issues of Swiss clinical neuroscience and contributes to shaping interdisciplinary training and courses. Transversality, better integration between fundamental and clinical neuroscience as well as between psychiatry and clinical neuroscience, and equal gender opportunities are further important topics and fields of action. In this article, the YouCliN Steering Committee presents the Network, the disciplines’ specific concerns and hopes, and positions itself with respect to future challenges for clinical neuroscience.
