C-cert Activity Description
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 C-cert activities include: 1) reading the subspecialty Reading List of journal articles relevant to their UCNS certification, and 2) taking and passing the subspecialty-specific 25-question online post-reading quiz to assess knowledge gained from the journal article content.
Article reading lists are posted annually on the website starting in January of each year to allow diplomates ample time to read the articles in preparation for their C-cert quiz. The lists include links to the journal articles or abstracts submitted by subspecialty peers and are selected by each subspecialty’s certification examination committees based on the article selection criteria. Diplomates should access and read the full designated articles on their subspecialty's reading list which may require utilizing alternative journal links, downloads, or hard copies.
