ABNS NEUROCRITICAL CARE RFP EXAM will be offered on Friday, May 19, 2023 in the morning.
Recognition of Focused Practice in Neurocritical Care
This RFP has been approved by the ABMS and has the goal of recognizing candidates who have successfully completed a standardized NCC training program or have met practice criteria, thereby elevating and advancing neurointensive patient care for the public good. The ABNS is the managing board and will certify neurosurgeons, but any ABMS member board can become a participant on behalf of its diplomates.
For someone to obtain the credential of Recognized Focused Practice in Neurocritical Care he/she, by virtue of their training and/or experience, should be able to take responsibility for and manage ALL of the critical care issues that arise in patients in the intensive care unit with all types of neurological conditions.
Note that more specific training and/or experience is required beyond that of the core neurosurgical training curriculum.
