Many claim that they do not have enough neurologists in Japan, but supply and demand of neurologists remains to be analyzed. To investigate the recruitment for the Japanese Society of Neurology (JSN), the subcommittee of JSN for education performed a questionnaire-based survey in 80 medical universities and 271 board-certified education facilities throughout Japan. The response rate to the questionnaire was 77.5% in medical universities and 42.4% in education facilities. It was shown that each department of neurology in university recruits average 2.2 doctors, while they supposed that more than 4 doctors to be recruited every year. The questionnaire survey included what measures JSN should take in order to promote recruitment for JSN.
