UCNS certified

« Back to Glossary Index

The United Council for Neurologic Subspecialities is the credentialing body for neurological specialties. A neurologist who successfully completes a post-graduate fellowship in headache medicine and passes the exam is “UCNS certified” in headache medicine. These doctors treat patients with migraine, cluster headache, post-trauma headache, and much more. They have a great deal more education and training in the diagnosis and treatment of headache disorders than a general neurologist or primary care physician.
