2018 Fall Chairs Session: Faculty Recruitment and Retention: Lessons and Strategies
One of the most important jobs for a department chair is recruiting and retaining high functioning, productive faculty. Every department has its own advantages and challenges in recruiting faculty, and each chair has something different and beneficial to share. Rather than have one or two speakers discuss their strategies, successes and failures that may be unique to the circumstances of their institution, we will have 8 chairs from a variety of regions and institution styles (eg. research intensive vs. clinically intensive, small vs. large, urban vs. rural) who will speak for about 5-10 minutes each and present one or two vignettes with no more than 3 powerpoint slides.
2020 Fall Chairs Session: How to Get More Medical Students to Choose Neurology as a Careerc
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.

2015 Fall Chairs Session: Mission-Based Hiring
Changes in healthcare delivery and reimbursement, a progressively competitive marketplace, and shrinking research revenue have forced academic medicine to address demands for improved clinical performance and productivity. The combination of these forces has driven a move away from the ideal of a triple-threat academician towards a division of labor along the core missions - patient care, education, and research. This course will consist of a short presentation about mission-based hiring (David Lee Gordon, University of Oklahoma), a short presentation about the incorporation of general and community neurologists into an academic practice (Steven Small, University of California, Irvine), and comments from a panel of chairs who have dealt with these issues followed by an open discussion session.
