The Association of University Professors of Neurology and the American Neurologic Association surveyed the leaders of academic neurology programs in the United States to assess the current financial health of academic neurology. The survey, completed in late 2002, addressed program relations with hospitals and medical schools and the effects of financial pressures on program operations, clinical responsibilities, research, teaching, and faculty development. Response patterns suggest academic neurology is challenged on several levels and indicate a need for strategic reflection and focused research to better gauge the state of neurology in the United States and to develop solutions for program survival and evolution.
