June 24, 2010

The American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), American Board of Neurological Surgery (ABNS), Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS), and Society of Neurological Surgeons (SNS) applaud the newly-released draft standards to revise the national requirements for the supervision and duty hours of medical residents. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) task force, charged with reassessing resident training program standards, issued the new recommendations based on a 16-month scientific review.
