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

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

Learning Objectives:
1)
Discuss the impediments to recruiting medical students to careers in Neurology
2) Describe several strategies for improving medical student involvement in Neurology
3) List resources available to improve medical student interest in Neurology

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

How to foster development of Junior Faculty

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

Learning Objectives:
1)
Discuss resources needed for faculty development in research, education, and clinical career paths
2) Discuss role of mentorship in faculty development
3) Discuss setting of expectations for early career work and advancement.

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

Moderator:

Kerry Levin, MD; Cleveland Clinic Foundation

Learning Objectives:
1)
Explain the relationships among leaders of an academic medical center
2) Identify characteristics that aid leadership up and down
3) Describe evolution of changes in academic neurology
