The IFCN is comprised of national member societies that share the mission to promote best practices in clinical neurophysiology through education and research and not individual members.
There are two options: 1. The threshold for a national society of clinical neurophysiology is 10 members of which there must be a President and Secretary or their equivalent. These 10 individuals must be interested in achieving the vision to improve healthcare worldwide by understanding the nervous system and optimizing the diagnosis and treatment of its disorders through clinical neurophysiology and start national society for clinical neurophysiology in your country. 2. Or for clinical neurophysiologists living in countries without a national society for clinical neurophysiology, the International Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ICNS) has been established.
Though most countries only have one member society, there are countries with more than one.
Component Groups of the IFCN
The Federation has four chapters which are the Asian-Oceania; the Europe, Middle East and Africa Chapter; the Latin America; and the North America. The Chapters assist in the communication process between the IFCN Executive Committee and the member societies.
The Executive Committee may authorize the formation of Special Interest Groups (SIG) to further the purposes of the Federation which are dedicated to a circumscribed clinical or scientific topic within clinical neurophysiology and serve to facilitate communities of clinical neurophysiologists and other professionals with similar interests.
The IFCN has seven Special Interest Groups (SIG). Information about these groups can be found within the Chapter & Membership navigation.
Membership in the IFCN SIGs is open to the full membership of all society and ICNS members. Individuals wishing to join a SIG are encouraged to join their corresponding IFCN member society or to join the IFCN.
