About WFN Specialty Groups

The World Federation of Neurology (WFN) Specialty Groups (SG) shall serve as a global forum for neurology subspecialties where a global organization in the same subspecialty does not exist; when they do, the ARGs are asked to affiliate with those organizations rather than with the WFN.

SGs shall support global research in the respective areas and shall be involved in educational activities of the WFN as well as in the biennial WFN congresses. The WFN trustees shall determine the degree of a group's continued involvement in the WFN necessary to maintain its status as a WFN SG. This includes an annual report of activities; an annual financial report; annual submission of a Conflict of Interest form by the chair of the group; and election of new members at least every four years.

Moreover, WFN expects that the SG will provide reports for World Neurology and maintain its website up-to-date in cooperation with the WFN office.
