WATCH TIME: 4 minutes

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.

Early involvement

  • Neurology is inherently interesting.
  • The clinical faculty is involved with every layer of the curriculum from the basic (foundational) sciences to the clinical rotations.
  • The best clinicians and teachers should be involved with basic neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, etc,

The Clerkship

  • Most schools have a dedicated clinical clerkship/rotation. For those that don’t it is essential to create one, and education leadership in neurology can effectively advocate for those departments.
  • Most clerkships are in the 3rd year. But some are placed in the 4th year which is too late for most students to change their career trajectory.
  • If a department needs help in resolving the scheduling issue with their school, education leadership from our professional organizations can provide strong and convincing support.
