I don’t know how many of you have already browsed the “Medical Students, Residents, and Fellows Guide” for the 69th Annual Meeting of the AAN here (https://www.aan.com/conferences/2017-annual-meeting/residents-fellows-guide/), but it has some great introductory information. This blog post is only meant to complement that resource.
There are over a dozen unique submission categories for the Neurology® Resident and Fellow Section (RFS), and most of these strive to enrich the clinical reasoning skills of neurology trainees. Not surprisingly, the majority of all submissions received by the RFS target this publication style. In fact, over 80% of all submissions in the preceding 10 months targeted the Teaching NeuroImages, Clinical Reasoning, or Teaching Video NeuroImages categories (figure). And this is intentional, as the RFS is a section of the Green Journal whose primary aim is to arm its trainees with educational tools and resources in order to transform readers into expert clinicians.
