C-cert Activity Description

The Continuous Certification (C-cert) activities provide subspecialty learning and knowledge assessment to ensure that diplomates are staying up to date on the latest science, treatments, and therapeutics relating to their subspecialty. The annual activities include: 1) reading the subspecialty  journal articles, and 2) taking and passing the 25-question online post-reading quiz to assess knowledge gained from the journal article content. 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this UCNS C-cert activity, participants will be able to:
  • Confidently advise families about the benefit of urgent thrombectomy as the treatment of choice for acute basilar artery occlusion
  • Choose the optimal flow diversion device for any given patient, based on the anatomic and clinical attributes specific to each situation
  • Understand the importance of identifying high-risk patients with cerebral AVMs, and the impact of interventional rather than conservative management
  • Indicate appropriate advanced imaging modalities that benefit patient selection for acute reperfusion therapies in acute ischemic stroke


The UCNS complies with all standards and policies of the ACCME, including identification and resolution of all conflicts of interest prior to the educational activity being delivered to learners. Accordingly, UCNS  planners, authors, and staff comply with the UCNS’s Conflicts of Interest Policy
