ACNS

American Clinical Neurophysiology Society

The American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) was founded in 1946 and is the major professional organization in the United States devoted to the establishment and maintenance of standards of professional excellence in clinical neurophysiology in the practice of neurology, neurosurgery and psychiatry.

ACNS members utilize neurophysiology techniques in the diagnosis and management of patients with disorders of the nervous system and in research examining the function of the nervous system in health and disease.

Now well-settled into its second half-century, with a membership of over 1,200 healthcare professionals, the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society continues to be a strong advocate for appropriate training in and practice of clinical neurophysiology techniques, and collaborates with other professional societies on strategies to advance the quality of patient care and improve patient outcomes.

ACNS is part of the North America Chapter of the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology.

The mission of ACNS is to serve patients and society by empowering members to advance the science, practice and profession of clinical neurophysiology.
