We facilitate affordable access to neuromodulatory therapies for patients around the world, met by a well-trained and technologically advanced industry.

For Professionals

We offer training and ongoing support for the local physician that carries out principle, day-to-day care. GNC has served as a resource for physicians and healthcare providers worldwide.

Referring physicians receive consultation and training with ongoing patient-specific communication regarding advances in treatment options including, but not limited to, DBS. Together we work to ensure newly diagnosed patients get off to the right start and that all patients receive optimal care.

Thiel College Annex

GNC is home to the Thiel College Study Annex for the Medical Arts, which serves students and faculty from GNC’s downtown Greenville location.

The Annex offers Thiel faculty, staff, and students a comfortable location for individual study, as well as a small gathering place for scientific and scholarly exchange. At the Annex, Thiel faculty and staff can access recent textbooks in neuroscience and medicine to help them provide state-of-the-art educational experiences for their students.

By offering these resources to the College, GNC hopes to support Thiel faculty members by increasing opportunities to incorporate human health and disease topics into their classrooms. Students will have opportunities to interact with practicing physicians, healthcare professionals, medical industry representatives, and technologists, as well as accomplished neuroscientists actively engaged in research.

The Annex is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Faculty may also request use of the space for group discussions or special events.

Our Partnerships

Long-term success depends on our commitment to collaboration. By teaming with generous donors, industry partners, government agencies and foundations, we will advance research, train the next generation of leaders and empower physicians worldwide.

Thiel College

Located in Greenville, Pennsylvania and known for its commitment to student success and growth, Thiel boasts dedicated faculty, numerous leadership opportunities and a wide variety of student activities and organizations.

In 2005, we joined Thiel in developing the Thiel College Neuroscience Program, an interdisciplinary endeavor that both exploits and improves the interface between biology and psychology. The program emphasizes experiential learning by requiring students to gain laboratory experience, take field trips, and complete internships and senior research projects. In doing so it prepares students for graduate programs in neuroscience, biology and psychology, and professional programs in various areas of allied health. It also readies them for such entry-level positions as technologist and sales representative.

In addition to working with Thiel College’s Neuroscience Program, GNC has developed innovative, auxiliary partnerships with medical device manufacturers and other biotechnology leaders. These partnerships will benefit GNC patients, Thiel students and medical communities worldwide.
