Dealing with Difficult Faculty; 2021 AUPN Programs; ASENT Translational Research Course…


The Voice of Academic Neurology's Leaders

 

AUPN’s Leadership Minute was very well received and Episode #2: Dealing with Difficult Faculty is now live (linked below).  In this segment, Dr. David Gordon, Chair of Neurology at the University of Oklahoma, provides an excellent and very concise overview of how to approach disruptive faculty, and details a sequential framework for handling them if initial interventions fail to correct their misbehavior (moderated by Dr. Mohammed Alvi, Director of the Stroke Center at West Virginia University).

Although the fall meetings are barely behind us, early 2021 brings further virtual innovations. We will be holding many of our usual spring 2021 AUPN Workshops and Sessions virtually throughout the first half of the New Year, and both the program director and clerkship director’s workshops will be held annually, rather than alternating every other year. These programs will be held on Friday afternoons at 2 PM CT on the following dates: Jan 22nd (Department Chairs & Program Director’s Forum); Jan 29th (Program Director’s Workshop); and Feb 5th (Clerkship Director’s Workshop).  In addition to these regular annual programs, we are developing a program on academic recruiting, also for February, and other new programs are also in development for 2021.

The American Society for Experimental NeuroTherapeutics (ASENT) is a non-profit organization of leaders in academia, government, advocacy and industry which works to accelerate therapeutic development in neurology and the neurosciences through training, networking and enhanced collaboration.  ASENT’s highly regarded annual course, Training in Neurotherapeutic Discovery and Development for Academic Scientists, will also be virtual this year and is coming in Feb. 2021. 
This four day crash course provides an expert overview of the neurotherapeutics discovery and development process, and is a great opportunity for junior academic faculty who are interested in a career in translational neuroscience or for anyone wishing to learn about this field. Details are available in the below links.

In other educational opportunities, the Aging and Sleep 2020 International Virtual Meeting, sponsored by the National Institute of Aging in collaboration with the International Association of Sleep Research in Gerontology (IASRG) will focus on the inter-relationship between sleep and Alzheimer’s Disease and is coming in early November.  It will include trainee workshops, abstract and poster sessions, and special interest group sessions, the proceedings of which will be published in a monograph. Details are linked below.

As we near the end of the calendar year, we would like to ensure our records are up to date to insure that all Chairs and Directors get the most out of their institutional memberships.  We ask that all Chairs take 5 minutes to complete this institutional profile form by November 15th. Should you have any questions or need assistance with the update, please email neuro@aupn.org.
