Accepting applications in Spring 2020.
ICPNT invites you to submit your neuroanesthesiology fellowship program’s application for accreditation to ICPNT. Your participation will indicate your historic role as a pioneering program in this novel international fellowship accreditation system. We are planning on this developing into an international educational and collaborative network in Neuroanesthesiology and expect your program and all programs to become valuable participants in this network.
Please review the program requirements and FAQs found on the ICPNT website. A non-fillable copy of the application is available to inform you about the information that will be required. Once you confirm your interest by submitting the online Request to Apply, we will provide you the on-line hyperlink URL to access the submission form. The application fee is $2500 with an annual $500 fee during the period of accreditation.
We have developed an entirely novel process: a formative evaluation followed by summative evaluation. Assuming submission by the deadline, the assigned reviewers will provide feedback to the Program Director for areas of improvement in the application. The PD can then respond, providing additional information, or proposing a plan to address any structural weaknesses in the program. The summative evaluation will then occur at the next ICPNT review meeting and will include a focused evaluation of the strengths and limitations with an accreditation decision but with further suggestions for programmatic improvements. Notably our intent is to approve accreditation or defer, pending amelioration of identified weaknesses. We do not want to “fail” any programs. We will appreciate opinions on how that process helps (or hinders) the planning and quality of your fellowship.
