Learning and Assessment for Continuous Certification

What are the new developments in your subspecialty that are relevant and important to your practice? What are the "must-read" articles for your subspecialty peers? Help identify the knowledge that should be expected of UCNS diplomates for continued certification in their subspecialty. Submit the recent journal articles and/or practice guidelines you feel are most relevant to physicians practicing in your neurologic subspecialty. Article submissions are accepted through July 31, 2024.

Criteria for article submissions:
  • Reflects recent advances within the past four years or current clinical knowledge in the subspecialty field
  • Clinically relevant articles
  • Drawn from peer-reviewed journals relevant to the subspecialty and/or the related primary specialty field
  • New or updated practice guidelines published in print or electronic form
  • Available to and easily accessible by UCNS diplomates
Submissions must include:
  • Title/volume/issue/date of journal article or resource
  • Article author(s)
  • Hyperlink to the online article or resource
All submissions are reviewed by the respective subspecialty UCNS certification examination committee and selected topics are included on an annual reading list of resources that will be available on the UCNS website for UCNS diplomates beginning in early 2025. Diplomates are required to read the selected articles then complete a brief online 25-question quiz relating to the reading list topics. Diplomates have three attempts to achieve 80% correct on the quiz to meet the annual continuous-certification learning requirements.
