- THE PARTICIPANT EXPERIENCE
I have found the ELF program to be very rewarding... any neurologist looking for a professional development opportunity should consider applying.
~ Lyell Jones, MD
Participation in the ELF program has been an incredibly valuable and rewarding experience. In addition to getting to work with much of the current and future leadership of the AAN, I've learned so much about being a leader, working as a group toward a common goal, and appreciating the different talents people bring to the table. Anyone interested in AAN involvement, local leadership, or just growing professionally should strongly consider the ELF program.
~ David Watson, MD
Connecting with a mentor who was nationally recognized as a leader in our field who was engaging, available, and inspiring has been one of the hallmarks of the program!
~ Kevin Sheth, MD
The ways in which the ELF program has enriched my professional life are countless. I have most enjoyed the opportunity to work closely with AAN staff and leadership, as it has provided an in-depth look at how the AAN functions, and I now know immediately who to call when I have a question or concern. The friendships formed with my ELF classmates were also an unexpected benefit and have made the experience so fun."
