Continuing Medical Education (CME) Accreditation

The main goals of the 2022 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting are to serve as a primary source of continuing medical education tailored specifically to the specialty, to advance neuroscience research and to promote a climate conducive to excellence in clinical practice. The 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting Committee is dedicated to meeting these goals.

The 2022 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting is the ultimate resource for the transfer of scientific, technical and intellectual information to the neurosurgical community. Feedback obtained from the online attendee evaluation survey is critical when determining program content. Special recognition is extended to the individuals of the Annual Meeting Committee and Scientific Program Subcommittee and the committees they represent for their perseverance and commitment to making the meeting a success.
