Functional Neurology Seminars Accreditation and Certification


Both National University of Health Sciences (NUHS) department of postgraduate education and the International Association of Functional Neurology (IAFNR) have approved Functional Neurology Seminars (FNS) program for providing specialty education of functional neurology.

Certificate of Completion by the International Association of Functional Neurology (IAFNR)


Participants of this program will be eligible for both a 100-Hour Certificate of Completion from this program by IAFNR. Participants must complete each module and pass the post-course online examination to receive recognition of hours toward the Certificate of Completion. The Certificate of Completion is independent of individual licensure credit hours. Credit hours from previous and future IAFNR annual conferences can be applied towards the Certificate of Completion. Note: Additional hours are available at other approved programs (see HERE).

Eligibility of Fellowship Board Certification in Functional Neurology


Participants who complete 150 hours of the FNS program or at other approved programs (see HERE) will be eligible to sit for the fellowship examination by the International Board of Functional Neurology (IBFN). IBFN is a division of the International Association of Functional Neurology (IAFNR). The board examination will lead to the designation of Fellow of the International Board of Functional Neurology (FIBFN). This is a multi-disciplinary board and the examination can be taken by those with an active health care license, including DC, ND, MD, DO, LAc, PT, FNP, etc.

Only credit hours approved by a university that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education will be eligible for IBFN examination. For additional information, see this page.
