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 academic interests and challenges. The AUPN supports department chairs through its educational offerings that are geared toward the leaders in Neurology Departments including program directors and clerkship directors.
To advance and strengthen the academic Neurology community through education, mentorship and the sharing of best practices among leaders in academic neurology.
To shape the future of neurology as the voice of its academic leaders.
We are excited to announce AUPN’s new 2019 - 2021 Strategic Plan, designed to guide and support AUPN’s role of fostering the development of academic neurology’s educational, research and patient care programs. The strategic plan was the result of a yearlong process, and developed by a diverse mix of AUPN members (Chairs, Program/Clerkship Directors, and Child Neurology Directors) and approved by the AUPN Council. This plan has refined AUPN’s Mission and Vision to guide AUPN’s future direction and activities as well as for the near term, laying out more specifically three overarching goals and specific objectives which have been prioritized for the next three years, which have been identified as essential core activities for AUPN.
Guided by the Strategic Plan, our efforts will focus on:
- Foster the development of academic neurology’s educational, research and patient care programs
- Support Chairs through educational offerings geared toward the leaders in academic neurology
- Serve as a forum for the Chairs of Neurology to discuss academic interests and challenge
