CACN Membership Categories
Full Member

Full members are physicians certified in neurology (pediatric stream) by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Other physicians and scientists not certified, but who meet the requirements for certification by the Royal College, or who manifest by their work a basic interest and competence in pediatric neurology, are also eligible, after a review of their training by the Executive Committee.

Junior Member

A Junior Member shall be in graduate training in pediatric neurology. Upon successful completion of Pediatric Neurology training, Junior Member status will automatically change to full member status and the CNSF office will bill them accordingly.

Associate Member

Physicians and scientists who are interested in the study of the developing nervous system, but do not meet the requirements of Full membership, may apply for Associate membership.

Retired Member

When Full Members have retired from active practice, and receive no professional income from their specialty, they may contact the CNSF office to receive a change to Retired membership status.
