The Board of Governors of the Philippine Neurological Association (PNA) approved a resolution that paved the way for creating a subspecialty board under the Adult Neurology Specialty Board (ANSB) targeting three (3) different specialties, namely epilepsy, neurophysiology, and stroke. Thus, the PNA created the Vascular Neurology Subspecialty Board, which will oversee the subspecialty fellows' certification and establish rules and guidelines for certification and accreditation of fellowship training programs. Currently, the Vascular Neurology Subspecialty Board members are: Maria Teresa Cañete, MD (Chair), Ma. Cristina San Jose, MD, Maria Carissa Pineda-Franks, MD, Belinda Mesina-Nepomuceno, MD, and Allan A. Belen, MD.




We are pleased to announce that the Certifying Examinations in Vascular Neurology will be administered this November 2024. This examination is provided by the Vascular Neurology Subspecialty Board once every 2 years and is a crucial step for neurologists seeking certification in the specialized field of Vascular Neurology.
