Proudly Presents:


2017 SCNS 44th Annual Meeting

Clinical Advances in Neurology and Neuroscience



The SCNS Annual meeting has earned a reputation over the last 40 years of being one of the most engaging, dynamic and intimate meetings of its kind. The Executive Committee of the society has limit attendance at the annual meeting to 100 physicians to promote a vigorous exchange of ideas between the participants and the faculty. This year’s agenda features reviews of the most recent advances in the field of neurology. Our faculty are not only experts in their fields, but also great mentors, collaborators and true sources of support for our participants.


The SCNS scientific meeting program is a 5 day event designed for neurologists and related health professionals. The meetings are from morning to lunchtime which affords the attendees the opportunity to get out in the sun around the pool or ocean and to explore the surroundings where there are many places of interest, great restaurants and beautiful scenery.


Each day, just prior to dinner, we invite you to enjoy our famous “meet the professor” get together where one or two of the day's speakers informally discuss hot topics and/or controversial issues in clinical neurology and you are welcome to contribute your own experiences including cases in your practice.


You will find that for the number of CME credits that you will receive, it is a real bargain! Come join us, you'll love it!
