The first 5-10 years of an academic neurology career are important in shaping a career path. How do you get from here to where you want to be? In this session, academic neurologists at different career stages will provide perspectives on balancing academic and clinical work as well as advice for navigating collaborations and conflict. 


  • Discuss the importance of time management when considering opportunities and when 'no' is ok and may be better than a 'yes.' 

  • Describe a strategy for documenting and quantifying contributions as a medical educator.

  • Review rationale and tools for building successful collaborations and managing conflict.
