Training Programs Achieve UCNS Accreditation
12-1-2021 The United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties (UCNS) is pleased to announce the names of five newly accredited UCNS fellowship training programs. Programs attaining UCNS accreditation status offer the core curriculum established by the subspecialty and meet required quality standards established by UCNS.

Fellows who complete a UCNS-accredited program meet the training eligibility requirements to apply for certification in the subspecialty. There are now 223 UCNS-accredited training programs in UCNS-recognized subspecialties.
