Clinical Neurophysiology

Deadlines, Fees and Content for Initial Certification in Clinical Neurophysiology
History and Statement of Principles

The ABPN, in concurrence with the ABMS, established a Committee on Certification of Added Qualifications in Clinical Neurophysiology in October 1990. This was done to officially establish the field of clinical neurophysiology as a definite area of subspecialization in neurology and psychiatry and to provide a means of identifying properly trained and experienced clinical neurophysiologists.

The actual mechanics of certification of qualified candidates have been delegated by the Board to the Committee, which operates under the supervision of and in accordance with the policies of the Board.

In February 1997, the Board, in agreement with the ABMS, discontinued using the term “Added Qualifications” for this certificate. The names of both the certificate and the Committee were changed at that time to “Certification in the Subspecialty of Clinical Neurophysiology.”
