The Brain Bee Bootcamp will follow the IBB World Championship structure (written exam, patient diagnosis, neuroanatomy, neurohistology), and will culminate with a mock IBB World Championship test. Guest speakers will include previous IBB Finalists, from whom you will learn tips, tricks, and how to make the most out of your experience. ​
