Girls Just Wanna Have (Academic) Funding

Congratulations! You are the newly-appointed chair of an academic neurology department. It’s time to recruit faculty to fulfill your tripartite mission of excellence in clinical medicine, education, and research. Luckily, using strategies learned at a recent contract negotiation workshop, you’ve secured a time machine as part of your startup package. Your master plan: recruit some of the greatest neurologists of all time to propel your department to greatness!

But hurry, your opponent is the new chair at a competing department across town, and will be vying for the same luminaries with the help of her own department-funded time machine. (She must have attended the same workshop.)


In this hilarious two-player game, you will navigate the vagaries of academic medicine - facing scandals, staff shortages, and lazy emeritus professors. But master the right tools, and your department will triumph!
