How to Get More Medical Students to Choose Neurology as a Career

Meeting:
2020 AUPN Fall Chairs Session
(Held in conjunction with ANA Annual Meeting)

Course Description:
The national shortage of neurologists is increasing, yet few US medical students select neurology as a career, causing continued reliance on foreign graduates for our residency training programs.  About 3.5% of medical students were neuroscience majors, yet less than 20% of them go on to neurology residencies.  What can we do to increase the popularity of Neurology as a career?

Learning Objectives:
1) Discuss the impediments to recruiting medical students to careers in Neurology
2) Describe several strategies for improving medical student involvement in Neurology
3) List resources available to improve medical student interest in Neurology
