2023 AUPN Fall Chairs Session I: Advanced Practice Providers and How They Fit into Neurology
This course discusses the advantages and challenges of using Advanced Practice Providers (APP’s) in Outpatient and Inpatient Neurological settings. Given the shortage of neurologists and neurological residents, departments must look to alternative methods to care for the tsunami of patients we care for in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
2023 Fall Chairs Session II: Neurology in the Multi-Centered World: Teaching on Multiple Campuses
Colleges of Medicine can have or are developing regional campuses that provide clinical training for their own medical students that are separate from clerkships at the primary site. Yet, regional campuses are part of a single medical school with the LCME requiring equivalent experiences, regardless of the campus. This requires Departments of Neurology develop processes for overseeing medical student education across campuses to assure this requirement is met. This can be particularly challenging when neurological expertise at regional campuses is limited or non-existent.
2023 Fall Chairs Session III: Title IX for Neurology Chairs
This course is designed to provide neurology department chairs and leaders with a comprehensive understanding of Title IX. The course will cover the legal requirements of Title IX and its application to neurology departments, as well as the responsibilities of department chairs and leaders in preventing and addressing sex discrimination. Through this course, participants will gain the knowledge and skills needed to effectively address and prevent sex discrimination with their departments.
2023 Meet the Chairs Interactive Workshop
Prominent chairs of neurology will discuss how they handle their position, including what's involved with being a chair; what the process is for attaining their position, and how to interact with chairs. This year's focus will be on “Pathways to becoming a chair”. The panel includes Chairs relatively new to the job, who will speak on what motivated them to look for this level of responsibility, what challenges they faced, how they have managed being a chair along with other facets of their academic career, etc.
2023 Webinar: Resident Expectations and Generation Z
In the first half, David Gordon will discuss the unique background and perspective of Generation Z learners, the roles of unconscious biases on the perspectives of Generation Z learners and their instructors, and the five main expectations of Generation Z residents. In the second half, Zach London will review examples of effective teaching strategies that can appeal to a younger generation of learners, including microlearning, game-based learning, and social media-based learning.
Healthcare system has been rapidly evolving across the nation. Neurology Departments are affiliated with hospitals that may be owned by the university or only have a contractual relationship with the medical school. These variable relationships have resulted in complex administrative systems in each institution that neurology chairs must navigate through. In the course, we have invited three neurology chairs representative of different hospital systems who will share their experiences during their courses of chairmanship.
2022 Meet the Chairs Interactive Workshop
Prominent chairs of neurology will discuss how they handle their position, including what's involved with being a chair; what the process is for attaining their position, and how to interact with chairs.
