Functional Neurology Seminars will be limited to Modules 1–10. Please read to the end of this announcement to learn how you can continue your functional neurology education and certification.
Modules 1-10 represent 150 hours of functional neurology education that starts with clinical neuroanatomy pathways and ends with the peripheral and central nervous system physical examination and treatment applications. Through modules 1–10 we have covered all the regions of the cerebral cortex, sub-cortical regions, the basal ganglia direct and indirect regions, the central and peripheral vestibular system, the peripheral nervous system, the spinal cord, the brainstem, and all of the major vasculature to the brain. Basically, we have covered all of the fundamentals necessary to evaluate the nervous system and to develop an integrated treatment protocol.
The FNS program is an approved program by the post-graduate department of the National University of Health Sciences and the International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation (IAFNR). Completion of this program at 150 hours fits the requirements for multidisciplinary Fellowship examination by the International Board of Functional Neurology (IBFN). The executive director of the IBFN is Lucinda Harman, PhD. The IBFN is working diligently to provide a standardized test for both functional neurology and for the childhood development specialty program that will lead to certification as Fellow of the International Board of Functional Neurology (FIBFN) and/or certification as Fellow of the International Board of Childhood Disorders (FIBCDD). More details will be sent to everyone as the examination further develops.
Also, for those of you who have completed 100 hours of Functional Neurology seminar hours or hours approved by an accredited regional university, you are eligible for a post-graduate certificate of completion through IAFNR.Click Here for IAFNR 100-Hour Certificate of Completion
Functional Neurology Seminars program (Modules 1–10) will continue to be available online for anyone to take the program and learn the fundamentals of functional neurology at their own pace from any location in the world. The FNS program will continue to serve as way to generate new membership for IAFNR and to keep student registration as affordable as possible. Program hours from Functional Neurology Seminars can also be used to satisfy hours for the American Chiropractic Neurology Board.
At this point FNS will only serve to provide the fundamental program of functional neurology that provides the eligibility to take the FIBFN exam and no other modules will be added to the Module 1–10 program.
Specialized modules, clinical workshops, ground rounds, will continue to be developed by Dr. Kharrazian, Dr. Brock, Dr. Mellilo, Dr. Humphreys and by other member of the IAFNR community for 2017 and 2018 but they will be independent of the core Module 1–10 program of Functional Neurology Seminars.
Dr. Kharrazian has developed a 10-module Neurochemistry Program that will be start in 2018 to augment the Functional Neurology Seminars Module 1-10.Dr. Kharrazian’s Functional Neurochemistry Program
Dr. Brock is in the process of developing workshops and clinical courses also to augment Module 1–10 of Functional Neurology Seminars.Dr. Brock’s Functional Neurology Program
The most important upcoming date for 2017 is the 8th Annual International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation (IAFNR)in Las Vegas November 2–5. This program will be developed in conjunction with National University of Health Sciences and provides continued board and CEU hours for state licensure and for hour requirements of the International Board of Functional Neurology and the American Chiropractic Neurology Board and for hours to attain the IAFNR 100-hour Post-Graduate Certificate of Completion. We hope to see everyone at IAFNR in November.Click Here for IAFNR November 2017 Conference
