    The Society of Neurological Surgeons is the oldest neurosurgical professional society in the world. Its creation by Harvey Cushing in 1920 represents the foundational moment for neurological surgery as an independent specialty of medicine. Today, the “Senior Society” comprises U.S. academic department chairs, residency program directors, and other educational leaders; serves as the representative body for neurosurgery to the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education; and sponsors the Association of Residency Administrators in Neurological Surgery. The Society’s Committee on Advanced Subspecialty Training (CAST) is responsible for the accreditation of subspecialty neurosurgery fellowships. Learn more about the Society’s history.
