The UCNS Board of Directors has approved an extension of the Neuro-oncology practice track through the 2015 examination. This is the last year to apply to sit under the practice track pathway. After 2015 only those who have completed a UCNS-accredited Neuro-oncology fellowship will be able to apply. The application cycle opens October 1, 2014, and the application deadline is January 15, 2015.
UCNS has launched a new online CME Tracker to assist diplomates in the UCNS recertification process. Diplomates can now quickly and conveniently enter earned CME and generate a report at any time to track their progress in meeting UCNS recertification requirements. The CME Tracker also allows diplomates with more than one UCNS subspecialty certification to monitor their progress for each certification.
To get started using the CME Tracker, users must first register and create a personal log-in. Once the log-in has been approved, diplomates can begin entering their CME activities. Instructions for using the CME Tracker and recertification information can be found on each subspecialty certification page. For more information, contact Todd Bulson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (612) 928-6067.

The UCNS annual accreditation fee will increase in 2014. This is the first increase by UCNS in accreditation fees, and is necessary to cover administrative costs associated with the rising number of UCNS programs. The annual fee will increase from $1,150 to $1,500. Accredited programs pay the annual fee by July 1 every year. This fee increase also affects the new program application fee, which includes the first year's annual fee. This fee will increase from $3,150 to $3,500 effective June 1, 2014. The continuing accreditation fee of $1,000 will not increase.
