Connectivity Course: Structural and Functional Brain Connectivity via MRI and fMRI: This is a five-day program on functional and structural connectivity using MRI. The next program will be held October 26-30, 2020.  (Monday->Friday.)  

The CONN Toolbox: This program is devoted to teaching the use of the CONN Toolbox for analyzing resting state connectivity data. The next program will be April 27 - May 1, 2020 (Monday->Friday).

fMRI Visiting Fellowship Program: This program provides an in-depth introduction to the field of functional magnetic resonance imaging. The next programs are March 23-27, 2020 and October 19-23, 2020. (All are Monday->Friday.)

The Multimodality Short Course:  The 2-week version of this program was held 2007-2016, and the 1-week version in 2017.  It is not anticipated that this program will be held in 2019 or 2020.

State-of-the-Art in MultiModality Functional Brain Imaging was a new 1-day workshop held on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 (shortly before the annual meeting of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping) and again on Tuesday, June 25, 2019, shortly after the OHBM meeting.  A similar pair may be held in 2020 if there is sufficient interest.

Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) Course: This introductory course covers the fundamentals of fNIRS and offers hands-on experience in its application.

FreeSurfer Tutorial and Workshop: The FreeSurfer Development Team hosts a three-day course for beginner and experienced users of FreeSurfer.

MIT IAP Course: Medical Imaging – Seeing what makes you sick: This course offers an in-depth examination of some of the frontier clinical imaging technologies, many of which were and are being developed at MIT.

Training Programs

Harvard/MGH Nuclear Medicine Training Program for Basic and Applied Research: The Harvard / MGH Nuclear Medicine Training Program for Basic and Applied Research is a multidisciplinary team focused on basic and applied nuclear medicine research.

MEMP Neuroimaging Graduate Training Program: This multidisciplinary program focuses on the application of modern brain imaging tools to solving basic and clinical neuroscience questions such as the underlying etiology of brain-based disorders, mechanisms of treatment, and predictors of response. It is a pre-doctoral training program run out of the MIT Engineering department.

Advanced Multimodal Neuroimaging Training Program (predoctoral): This program provides neuroimaging research training opportunities for advanced Harvard University, Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate students from a variety of disciplines and departments.
