This session is meant to provide attendees with information from experienced and successful academic neurologists who have navigated an academic career. The speakers will be provided with an outline of critical choices to discuss such as: choice of training programs, subspecialty, level/type of scholarship, where to work, when to move, and when to move on (from a path that isn't working). They will also discuss pitfalls that they have experienced themselves or seen with others (maintaining confidentiality of course).


  • Develop a personal plan for making critical career decisions in one's own academic neurology career.

  •  Apply lessons learned in this session to adviser/mentor relationships in one's career.
