Letter From Our President

With over 40 years of annual educational experience, the Southern Clinical Neurological Society (SCNS) remains one of the most highly thought of conferences each year. Warm weather venues during the 3rd week in January make the meeting especially attractive for our attendees from all across North America. The blending of academic and clinical neurologists as well as other neuroscience related professionals makes for a wonderful learning experience. Presentations are given by people who possess cutting edge knowledge who provide practical information for evaluation and treatment of a variety of neurological disorders. Each day of the conference has a particular focus such as epilepsy, stroke, dementia and movement disorders, neuroimmunology and neuromuscular disorders and headaches and sleep medicine. Meetings are half day in duration affording attendees time to explore various activities both in and around the venue. Prior to dinner each day, an informal “Meet the Professor” get together with one or two of the speakers of the day allows for an informal forum to discuss important, clinically relevant topics on common practice oriented issues and attendees are encouraged to contribute to discussions using their own cases and experience. Yearly CME requirements for attendees are generally satisfied by this one conference. One of the most gratifying things about the SCNS is the ability to meet people of similar medical interests and build friendships not only in the arena of medicine but also socially as well.
Come join us for painless knowledge enhancement!
