UCNS Begins to Offer Accreditation for Neonatal Neurocritical Care

5-4-2023 The United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties (UCNS) is pleased to announce the availability of accreditation for Neonatal Neurocritical Care (NNCC) fellowship training programs. Accreditation is a voluntary process of program evaluation and peer review based on UCNS accreditation standards. Programs attaining UCNS accreditation status offer the core curriculum established by the subspecialty and show commitment to continuous program improvement that meets the established NNCC program requirements. Fellows who complete a UCNS-accredited program meet the training eligibility requirements to apply for certification in the subspecialty. 

Training programs interested in applying for accreditation will find application and program requirement information for each subspecialty under Accreditation at UCNS.org. There are two accreditation application review cycles per year. Applications received by July 31, 2023, will be reviewed for accreditation in the fall of 2023. Applications received by January 31, 2024, will be reviewed in spring 2024.

There are currently 234 UCNS-accredited training programs in nine UCNS-recognized subspecialties
