Education, Research, and Methodology
This program will provide information to early-stage neurologists (senior residents, fellows, instructors, and junior faculty) who are embarking on an academic career in neurologic research (clinical, basic, or translational) with a focus on acquiring a career development award. Didactic and small group session will focus on preparing for NIH grants, other funding opportunities, critical insights on work/life balance, mentor-mentee relationships, and academic career development. Attendees will also have the opportunity to network with prior AAN Foundation/Brain Foundation recipients to learn about science and successful research paths. Participants should gain essential information about core components of a successful career development award as well as important insights on other aspects of academic neurology, including work/life balance, mentor-mentee relationships, funding opportunities, grant writing, and overall academic career development. The small group session should be invaluable for providing immediate feedback to questions about academic neurology and will also provide an outstanding opportunity to network with other peers and mentors.
