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.


  • Sherlock Holmes (“I love puzzles”)
  • Oliver Sacks (“neurologists can talk to the diseased organ”)
  • Brain – the final frontier (“new discoveries all the time”)
  • The physical exam matters
  • Long-term relationships (treat the patient, not the disease– focus on quality of life)

NEUROLOGY’S BAD RAPS (and how to use the Greatest Hits to address them)

  • Too hard
    • stress the puzzles: clinical reasoning, not pattern recognition
    • minimize the esoterica:
  • Too sad
    • final frontier
    • focus on quality of life
  • Too futile
    • ditto (and welcome to medicine)
