AUPN's Leadership Minute is a brief, highly focused summary of practical advice for Chairs, Program Directors and other leaders in academic neurology, available as both mini-podcasts and in short form videos.
The goal of this program is to provide relevant and useful information in a modicum of time, designed to fit seamlessly into our very busy schedules.
A major challenge in academic neurology departments is supporting basic and translational research. As clinical revenue becomes increasingly important to the financial health of Neurology Departments, supporting non-clinical activities such as teaching and research has become increasingly difficult.
This is especially problematic for physician-scientists, many of which require several years of both salary and research support.
So how can you build research in your Department?
