TARGET AUDIENCE
The 45th Annual Meeting of the Southern Clinical Neurological Society (SCNS) is designed for clinical and academic neurologists and other physicians with an interest in neurology. The Scientific Program has been planned to give the attendees an update on the latest developments in various specialties of neurology.

GENERAL MEETING
The meetings are from morning to lunchtime which affords the attendees the opportunity to get out in the sun around the pool or ocean and to explore the surroundings where there are many places of interest, great restaurants and beautiful scenery.

MEET THE PROFESSOR
Each day, just prior to dinner, we invite you to enjoy our famous “meet the professor” get together where one or two of the day’s speakers informally discuss hot topics and/or controversial issues in clinical neurology and you are welcome to contribute your own experiences including cases in your practice.

ABPN MOC

ACCREDITATION
SCNS is working with VCU Health Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing educational credits to participants at the conference.  Both SCNS and VCU Health Continuing Medical Education adhere to the ACCME Standards for Commercial Support of CME regarding industry support of continuing medical education.


The society will provide self-assessment and performance-in-practice activities required by the ABPN for maintenance of certification. You will register for these activities separately. These activities will be in the area of epilepsy in 2018. There will be a discussion of these activities for registered participants in an afternoon session. ABPN approval is pending.

The MOC program requires participants to participate in sanctioned self-assessment performance measures, identify possible weaknesses in their knowledge, pursue learning activities tailored to individual areas that need to be strengthened, and develop quality improvement programs based on their clinical practice.
