The United Council for Neurological Subspecialties (UCNS)
The UCNS was incorporated in March 2003. It is a non-profit professional medical organization sponsored by five parent organizations.
* American Academy of Neurology
* American Neurological Association
* Association of University Professors of Neurology
* Child Neurology Society
* Professors of Child Neurology (see Child Neurology Society website)
The primary mission of the UCNS is to accredit training programs in neurologic subspecialties and to certify competence in physicians who have completed an accredited training program, with the goal of enhancing the quality of training benefiting both physicians and patients.
The UCNS will assist subspecialties that have matured to the point where accreditation of training programs and certification of program graduates are appropriate and yet these programs have not grown to a size that would allow American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology certification.
