Evan Jameyfield, left, and Sean Pennetti, two students at the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University, have been selected to take part in a new clinical neurosciences exchange program with the University of Oxford.

The School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University on Wednesday launched a clinical neurology partnership with England's prestigious University of Oxford.

Two Quinnipiac medical students, Sean Pennetti and Evan Jameyfield, are attending a six-week program in Oxford, England that includes two weeks of seminars and four weeks of clinical neurology. Pennetti is currently a North Haven resident, originally from Pennsylvania, and Jameyfield is a New Britain resident, formerly of Indiana.

Meantime, two Oxford students will also attend the seminars and then travel to Connecticut for a month-long clinical rotation at the Mount Sinai Rehabilitation Hospital on Blue Hills Ave. in Hartford. The rehab facility is the main partner of Quinnipiac's Institute for Rehabilitation Medicine.

The Oxford students will also study at Quinnipiac's medical school in North Haven.

"This affiliation with the University of Oxford provides a unique opportunity for our students to immerse themselves in a rich learning experience related to neuroscience and clinical neurology," Dr. Bruce Koeppen, the dean of the Quinnipiac's medical school, said.

Faculty from Quinnipiac and Oxford overseeing the exchange program say they hope the it will become a long-term collaboration that is beneficial for both institutions.

The organizers officially launched the program Wednesday with a dinner at Oxford.
