Clerkship coordinators face many challenges supporting the administration of a neurology clerkship, including limited resources and research and clinical missions that compete for time and resources with the education mission. This award acknowledges the essential function of neurology clerkship coordinators in medical student education by recognizing how their creativity and innovation is essential to the future of neurology.
Two recipients will be selected annually and will receive a certificate of recognition from the AAN.
