A. History and Statement of Principles
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.”
B. Specific Training Requirements
Applicants for certification in clinical neurophysiology must be certified by the Board in neurology, in neurology with special qualification in child neurology, or in psychiatry by December 31 of the year prior to the examination administration. All applicants other than those initially admitted during the “grandfathering period” are required to submit documentation of successful completion of one year of ACGME-accredited fellowship training in clinical neurophysiology that did not begin before the time general residency training (neurology, child neurology, or psychiatry), including time spent in combined training programs, was completed. All licensing and training requirements must be met by June 30 of the year prior to the examination.
