United Council for Nuerologic Subspecialties


UCNS Membership

Recognized 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 definition and criteria for both an Independent Board and a Neurologic Subspecialty Area may be found in the Subspecialty Recognition Application. The recognition application must document that the proposed subspecialty is a discrete and credible area of practice in neurology. In rendering its decision to approve a subspecialty, the UCNS Board considers comments submitted by interested parties, including organizations representing other specialties and subspecialties.
