Child neurologists are specially trained physicians who have followed up their four-year medical school education with a five-year post-graduate training regimen consisting of two years training in pediatrics, one year in general neurology, and two years in pediatric neurology.

In 1969, the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology awarded the first board certificate in Neurology “with Special Qualifications in Child Neurology.” Three years later, in 1972, the Child Neurology Society was founded with an initial enrollment of 223 members. There are, at present, over 70 university-based training programs in child neurology in the United States and Canada, and over 1800 child neurologists in the CNS.

 The CNS Web Site is primarily designed to serve the ongoing academic, research, and practice-based needs of its members. As it evolves in the coming months, it will also serve as an invaluable informational resource and portal to other websites for professionals working in related fields, medical students interested in exploring careers in child neurology, and parents of children searching for a neurologists, support groups, or other websites which may prove useful in helping them to understand and address the challenges confronting their family.Read More»
