The Association of University Professors of Neurology (AUPN) was founded in 1967 and formally incorporated in 1968. It was organized originally to foster the development of academic neurology’s educational, research and patient care programs. The organization has always served as a forum for the Chairs of Departments or Divisions of Neurology in accredited medical schools in the United States, or similar programs in Canada, to discuss mutual academic interests and concerns.
To shape the future of neurology as the voice of its academic leaders
To advance and strengthen the academic Neurology community through education, mentorship and the sharing of best practices among leaders in academic neurology
For institutions with an alternate administrative structure, the organizational unit in that institution responsible for the care of patients with neurologic disease and the education of students and/or residents in neurology will be considered the ‘department of neurology’.
