Neuroanesthesiology is an exciting and popular career option. Fellowship specialty training in neuroanesthesiology goes a long way in enhancing the clinical and research profile of practitioners.
The Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care (SNACC) is an international scientific society with a history of membership and leadership from several non-U.S.-based countries that have robust neuroanesthesiology services and training programs. Hence, SNACC launched the International Council for Perioperative Neuroscience Training (ICPNT) in early 2019 – a huge leap into the future for neuroanesthesia fellowships. The ICPNT, as the name suggests, has a global purview of fellowship training, and will also possibly encompass related disciplines such as neuromonitoring and neurocritical care in the future. The aim is to create a network of fellowships producing leaders in the realm of perioperative neuroscience.
