Programs

The American Neurological Association hosts a wide range of educational programs. These programs seek to enhance the development and success of those pursuing a career in academic neurology at all levels. There are educational offerings to benefit those at the beginning stages of their career as well as those looking for best practices in Chair level positions. These programs seek to enhance attendee's success in the field of academic neurology and to contribute to the overall education of neurologists and neuroscientists.

The ANA is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Below are descriptions for a few of our most sought-after programs:


ANA Investigates: A podcast series

Each month, during 15-20 minute episodes, we’ll delve into topics such as implicit bias in the workplace & patient care, designing and implementing a global teleneurology program, unbiased metagenomic next generation sequencing for diagnosis of CNS infection / inflammatory conditions, neurovirology, functional neuroimaging of functional movement disorders, and more! You can subscribe to the podcast on Apple, Google, Spotify, or listen right here on MyANA.

ANA Annual Meeting

For more than 146 years, the ANA has hosted an annual conference bringing together the best minds in neurological research. 

Translational and Clinical Research Course

The biennial course is designed to further the development of young physician-scientists interested in or engaged in translational or clinical neuroscience research. Held at the Annual Meeting, this course will provide selected research fellows, residents, and junior faculty members with strategies for career development and developing research grant proposals that are designed to encourage trainees and junior faculty to pursue careers in academic neurology.

 The purpose of this course is to encourage trainees and junior staff to pursue careers in neurology, in particular, academic neurology.

ANA-NINDS Career Development Symposium

The ANA-NINDS Career Development Symposium is designed to provide the K08, K12, K23 and K99 recipients with the essential tools to enhance their ability to write successful grant proposals and to obtain grant funding from NIH and other institutions. The Symposium is led by senior neurologists and neuroscientists who have proven success in scientific grant writing. Senior staff from the NINDS will provide advice concerning the mechanisms involved in grant submission and evaluation. This symposium is typically held prior to the ANA Annaul meeting.
