UCNS Volunteer Opportunities

Certification Examination Committee

Each year, the UCNS reaches out to the subspecialty sponsoring organizations to solicit nominations for volunteers to serve on their respective subspecialty certification examination committee. Certification examination committee members are responsible for the development and completion of the subspecialty certification examinations and Continuous Certification (C-cert) annual reading lists and quizzes

Each committee is comprised of a minimum of 10 subspecialty subject matter experts who are appointed by the subspecialty’s sponsoring organization(s) for 2-3 year terms that begin on May 1st. Nominations for each sponsoring organization are reviewed for approval by the UCNS Certification Council. All examination committees report to the Certification Council.

Share your time and expertise to advance your subspecialty! If you are interested in serving as a volunteer on your subspecialty's certification examination committee, review the job description and submit the Certification Examination Committee Volunteer Interest Form. By submitting the online form, you give permission for the UCNS to share the interest form information with the relevant nominating organization(s) for their nomination consideration. Submission deadline for 2025 nomination consideration is October 31, 2024.

Sponsoring organizations will notify individuals directly if they are being considered for nomination.
