Travel Awards

Each year, ACNS provides Travel Awards for physicians in training and early career physicians to attend the ACNS Annual Meeting and Courses. To be eligible for the travel fellowship, physicians must be:

  1. In training or within two years of completion of training and
  2. The first author of an abstract submitted for poster presentation at the Annual Meeting.

All submitted abstracts will be scored by the Program Committee. Awards will be based on the highest abstract scores. Travel Awards to the ACNS meeting will provide meeting and course registrations and a travel stipend of $1,000. Travel Awardees will be honored during one of the Award Sessions at the ACNS Annual Meeting. Application for Travel Awards is made at the time of abstract submission. Funding for Travel Awards is provided by the North American Chapter of the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology (IFCN).

ACNS Professional Development Mentorship Program

The ACNS Professional Development Mentorship Program is an opportunity to network with some of the best neurophysiologists in the world! 

Participants may sign up to serve as mentors or as mentees requesting a mentor when they register to attend the ACNS Annual Meeting. The registration form includes a number of questions (medical school and fellowship information, areas of research or clinical interest, etc) intended to assist in matching mentees with mentors appropriately.

The goals of the program are to:

  • Foster career development in Clinical Neurophysiology;
  • Encourage active participation in the many activities of ACNS; and
  • Facilitate networking among ACNS members.
