CME Information

Meeting Description: In this fourth annual ACNS CNP Program Director’s Symposium, we will review the implications and benefits associated with entering one of the trainee match systems. Epilepsy will likely enter the match, and other neurology subspecialty training programs are likely to follow suit. It has been proposed that this be considered for Clinical Neurophysiology training programs as well. In addition, novel techniques to enhance education will be demonstrated that the attendee should be able to apply at their program following demonstration. Finally, an update on the latest and potential future directions of the ACGME referable to CNP program requirements and accreditation processes will be presented.

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this program, the participants should be able to:

  1. Understand nuances, challenges and benefits of the match process for training programs;
  2. Identify ready-to-use tools that can be utilized to enhance and expand education offerings for trainees;
  3. Explain and understand recent changes to CNP fellowship program requirements..

Target Audience: This educational activity is directed to clinical neurophysiologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, physiatrists, neurosurgeons, trainees in these disciplines and other physicians and researchers who utilize clinical neurophysiological techniques and knowledge in the diagnosis and management of patients with disorders of the nervous system.

Accreditation Statement: This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Polices of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the sponsorship of the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS). ACNS is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Credit Designation: ACNS designates this activity for a maximum of 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
