How to get more medical students to choose Neurology as a career?

Tuesday, October 6th
10:30 AM - 11:00 AM ET

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?

Speaker(s):
Imran Ali, MD; University of Toledo
Doug Gelb, MD, PhD; University of Michigan
David Gordon, MD

Rachel Gottlieb-Smith, MD; University of Michigan

Moderator:

How to foster development of Junior Faculty How to get more medical students to choose Neurology as a career?

Wednesday, October 7th
10:30 AM - 11:00 AM ET

Course Description:
Developing the careers of junior faculty is an important responsibility for chairs, which has become more challenging in recent years.  For research-focused faculty, the major issue may be protecting research time before they obtain grant funding, while for clinically intensive faculty, there may be little opportunity for academic accomplishment and promotion. Education-focused faculty may find it difficult to support their education effort. Additional concerns may be non-traditional and part-time roles, adjunct faculty, career interruptions while raising families, and perceived differences in career goals among millennials. This session will explore strategies for promoting successful careers for the next generation of junior faculty.

Speaker(s):
Barbara Vickrey, MD, MPH; Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai (NY)
Dave B Watson, MD, FAAN, FAHS; West Virginia University - Robert C. Byrd Health

Moderator:
Kerry Levin, MD; Cleveland Clinic Foundation

 

Managing up and down: Getting what you need from your faculty and your Dean

Thursday, October 8th
10:30 AM - 11:00 AM ET

Course Description:
Leadership involves getting people to do what you want them to do, not necessarily what they want to do, in service of a greater goal.  This session will explore strategies for leading both the faculty who report to you, and those in higher positions at your institution, to achieve your goals for your department.

Speaker:
Steve T. DeKosky, MD, FACP, FANA, FAAN; University of Florida Health

Moderator:
John Greenfield, MD, PhD; University of Connecticut School of Medicine
