Member subspecialties are practice areas that are recognized by UCNS after rigorous review of an application submitted by one or more sponsoring organizations. Sponsoring organizations may be either Independent Boards or Neurologic Subspecialty Areas. The membership application must document that the proposed subspecialty is a discrete and credible area of practice in neurology. In rendering its decision to approve a member subspecialty, the UCNS Board considers comments submitted by interested parties, including organizations representing other specialties and subspecialties.
The Guide for Development of Subspecialty Foundational Documents (.pdf) provides information on subspecialty core content, a core curriculum template, and a program requirements template. The guide serves as reference tool for subspecialty membership applicants.
