Currently, training in neurology does not generally include information on career transitions and exposure to the full range of post-training career opportunities. A plethora of options exist – including basic/clinical or outcomes/quality research or pure clinical practice in an academic setting, private practice, a variety of roles in the biopharmaceutical industry including research and development, as well as jobs in tech, government, and other sectors. The goal of this session is to get attendees to start to think about these transitions and the options available to them. This will be done through a facilitated discussion with several speakers who have taken different career paths post-training, and who will describe what brought them there.

Learning Objectives:

  • Following this session, learners will have a better understanding of the full range of career options available to them in neurology/neuroscience including academic medicine, private practice, biopharmaceuticals and the tech industry.
