Welcome to the American Neurotology Society website. Here you can access information pertaining to the society.

Purpose

The American Neurotology Society (ANS) is committed to improving public health care through the provision of high-quality continuing medical education (CME) to our members. The overall goal of the ANS CME committee is to provide CME activities that will address the knowledge gaps and enhance the clinical competence of the participants.

The ANS Continuing Medical Education Mission Statement shall be:


Target Audience

The ANS CME efforts are primarily focused on current and potential members of the society. This consists predominantly of practicing otolaryngologists, otologists, neurotologists, skull base surgeons, and allied health professionals including neurosurgeons, otoneurologists, audiologists, residents in training and researchers in these fields.

Types of Activities Provided

In order to accomplish the goals of the ANS CME program, the continuing education committee will offer a range of activities with specific educational outcomes in mind. Current offerings include:

• Scientific symposia, delivered twice per year at national venues, showcasing the latest research in the field and featuring national and international experts on related clinical topics.
• Courses and workshops offered at the annual meeting of the American Academy of
Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
• Facilitation of manuscript submission on presented materials for publication in a peer reviewed journal (Otology & Neurotology).

Content

The content of the ANS CME program centers around clinical issues related to Neurotology and disorders of the skull base. The ANS also strives to respond to our members’ educational needs that are not being met by other organizations, and therefore also offers activities in the areas of risk management, patient safety, physician-patient communications, coding, HIPAA compliance, and other regulatory issues as they relate to Neurotology.

Expected Results

The CME program of the ANS strives to enhance the participants’ knowledge and clinical competence in subject areas relevant to the field of Neurotology.

We have changed our look and added some new features to the site. Quicker access to downloadable forms, new google search and easier newsletter retrieval are made easier. Please keep coming back for our latest updates.
