UCNS Expands Certification Eligibility for Doctors of Osteopathy
Physicians who hold a primary certification by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) are now eligible to apply for all UCNS subspecialty certifications. The UCNS certification general eligibility criteria for certification has been updated to include doctors of osteopathy (DOs) who have trained at an AOA-accredited residency program and are boarded by an AOA board. The change was approved by the UCNS Board of Directors
at its December 2019 meeting and the change will go into effect for all UCNS-recognized subspecialties beginning with the 2020 subspecialty certification examinations.
