Congratulations to Newly Accredited Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry Fellowship Program

 

The United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties (UCNS) recently announced the name of the newly accredited UCNS Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry fellowship training program along with the names of seven other accredited subspecialty programs. Programs attaining UCNS accreditation status offer the core curriculum established by the subspecialty and meet required quality standards established by UCNS.

 

Accreditation is a voluntary process of evaluation and peer review based on UCNS accreditation standards. Fellows who complete a UCNS-accredited program meet the training eligibility requirements to apply for certification in the subspecialty. There are now 46 UCNS-accredited Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry programs and a total of 234 UCNS-accredited neurologic subspecialty programs across all UCNS-recognized subspecialties. Information about the Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry Fellowship Program Requirements or about applying for UCNS-accreditation is available at www.ucns.org/accreditation. Congratulations to the programs and their program directors in achieving UCNS accreditation effective December 1, 2022.

 


A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

November 23, 2022

Dear ANPA Community and Members,

The holiday season is upon us, and soon the New Year will come.

With that, I wanted to share some of our activities to date and plans for the rest of this year and for the new year to come.

In my introduction as your upcoming President, I pledged to work on a few goals:

1.     To support the ANPA as a professional home to its members.

2.     To support growing membership involvement in the organization. To increase member involvement, and to increase the organization’s network value.

3.     To reach out to organizations in neighboring fields to establish collaborations and to spread the word about ANPA’s value to their members. To create appropriate incentives to grow the membership of ANPA and expand our organization’s national and international influence.

4.     To spread the message and excitement about neuropsychiatry and applied neurosciences to the next generation of clinician-neuroscientists.

The pandemic forced us to reorganize our Annual Meeting to a fully virtual meeting. We have done this for the last two years, have continued delivering our excellent scientific programming virtually, and have continued enjoying great participation from our virtual attendees. That said, many of us miss getting together as a group, meeting up with old friends, networking, and getting to know new ANPA members.

In 2023, we will have the opportunity to once again meet in person. We plan to do so safely, heeding the lessons from the pandemic. We planned the meeting with enough time for associational activities built into the conference so that members can participate in committees, network, and discover new connections and collaborations. In addition to the live conference, we plan to stream the presentations online so virtual attendees (which included 15 countries outside of the US in the past year) can benefit from their content. Every presentation will be recorded and available to be watched after the conference in case you missed it or want to return to it later. We are excited about this first-of-its-kind hybrid ANPA conference and the opportunities it provides.

The 2023 program will include exciting BNNP topics such as Neuropsychiatry of Psychedelics, Dementia and TBI, Tourette Syndrome and Tic Spectrum Disorders, Music and the Brain, Brain Stimulation, Research and Clinical Platform Presentations, and others. Many committees worked to make this program possible, including the Program, Education, and Membership Committees, the SBCN Kaufer Symposium organizers, the President, and others.

In collaboration with the British Neuropsychiatric Association (BNPA) Presidents Valerie Voon and later Boyd Ghosh, we put together a joint ANPA/BNPA session at the BNPA Annual Meeting in May 2022. On the ANPA side, Dr. Shan Siddiqi gave an excellent talk on Neuromodulation, and ANPA members were able to join the session free of charge. This year, we plan to continue the collaboration by having a BNPA talk at the ANPA Annual Meeting and an ANPA talk at the BNPA Annual Meeting (which is held on March 2nd and 3rd, 2023). Members of both organizations would be able to virtually attend the ANPA/BNPA collaboration sessions for free and attend the rest of the sister organization meeting virtually or in person at member rates.

Poster presentations have always been a great venue to showcase new cases or research, get feedback, and meet like-minded clinician-neuroscientists. We received more than 100 abstract proposals by the abstracts deadline on November 7th, well in line with pre-pandemic numbers. That said, we heard from several ANPA members that the deadline may have negatively impacted the ability of various clinician-neuroscientists to submit. With that in mind, the Executive Committee decided to offer a second call for proposals with a deadline of December 1st to encourage those who were unable to submit. The only difference is that submissions in response to this second call for proposals will not be eligible for platform presentations. If you are reading this and wanted to submit an abstract but were unable to, please take action – there is still time.

We thrive on the initiatives of our members. A group of our members - David Perez, Trey Bateman, and Kevin Black - approached the Executive Committee with a proposal to start Twitter postings on BNNP-relevant topics. We appreciated the enthusiasm that motivated the proposal, worked with the group on creating guidelines that would keep tweets on firm ethical and professional ground, and now the ANPA Twitter account is posting about news in BNNP.

We would like to provide the opportunity for ANPA members to learn, network, communicate, and collaborate with each other between annual meetings. To that end, we are working on a few initiatives:

  • 1.     We have put together a list of webinar presenters that include several SBCN Norman Geschwind prize winners; we are in the process of scheduling these.
  • 2.     Encouraged by the Membership Committee, we have taken on the task of redesigning the ANPA website in line with 21st century standards to serve the organization’s functions and member activities better. We are exploring the scope and timeline of the website redesign and plan to make this happen in the near future.
  • 3.     Under the leadership of David Arciniegas, President-Elect, and in collaboration with the Membership Committee, we have developed a plan to reinvigorate the Special Interest Groups’ work in-between annual meetings.

We applied for and received a grant by the Sidney R. Baer, Jr. Foundation to continue funding the ANPA Career Development Award for the next five years. This is a major investment in the future of BNNP and will spearhead the careers of many promising early-career clinician-neuroscientists.

We have many things to be grateful for. We are grateful to our membership which is our BNNP village, to our organization which is our professional home, and to the advances in science that make our professional lives exciting.

Personally, I am grateful for the opportunity to work with such intelligent, dedicated, energetic, diverse, and like-minded people at our ANPA and BNNP village.

Happy Thanksgiving, and Happy Holidays ahead!

I look forward to seeing you in person in March 2023!
