SNACC's Plans for Accrediting Neuroanesthesiology Fellowships - Give Us Your Opinion!

Following the Neuroanesthesia Program Directors Meeting in Washington, DC last spring, it was decided to move forward with developing a group that will be responsible for the accreditation of neuroanesthesiology fellowship programs. Members of this fellowship task force formulated a charter for a fellowship accreditation organization called the International Council on Perioperative Neuroscience Training (ICPNT) and plans to move forward to establish this body and institute a process to provide accreditation of neuroanesthesiology fellowship training programs around the world. We realize a lot more work is needed prior to opening up this process. However, developing a charter for the ICPNT was our first step. We would like your feedback on this charter.

You can access the charter by clicking here. You can submit your comments by clicking here.

Please respond with your feedback by Monday, April 2, 2018. Thank you so much for your feedback in this important process!
