ANA Futures Program

The American Neurological Association (ANA) Futures Program is a longitudinal career development program for Medical Students and Residents interested in careers in academic neurology. This program is a unique opportunity because it will provide career guidance via individualized interactions with leading academic neurologists. 

 

The program involves participation in three small group zoom sessions with ANA Leaders (each session focused on a different career development topic) culminating in an in-person meeting with ANA Board Members and Leaders on October 22 in Chicago at the beginning of our Annual Meeting (October 22-25, 2022).

 

The Medical Student Virtual Sessions will focus on:

  • Academic Career Path Selection
  • Residency Application Preparation
  • Residency Interview Practice

The in-person session will involve the medical students "interviewing” with ANA Board Members and Leaders, who will give feedback.

The Resident Virtual Sessions will focus on:

  • Helping Residents develop any research projects they’re already working on (any stage, any type – clinical, basic science, education, etc.)
  • Develop the project and find Mentors/Collaborators
  • Find Funding
  • Present research to different audience types

The in-person session will involve the residents presenting their project plan (not necessarily results) to ANA Board Members and Leaders, who will give feedback.
