Students have asked for Duke Course Credit

Over these last few years, I’ve received many inquiries from people all over the world who are seeking official Duke University course credit for the online course  Medical Neuroscience. For example, some of these students are trying to fulfill a requirement of an academic program in their own university. Others seek to complete a requirement for admission to the next educational level  (e.g., graduate admissions or medical school admission).
