Western Neurological Society Votes to Give DOs Full Membership Rights

The Western Neurological Society (WNS) recently voted to change its bylaws to allow full membership to osteopathic neurosurgeons who are board certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery. WNS is part of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, which does not extend membership rights to osteopathic neurosurgeons. WNS is the nation’s first major MD neurosurgery organization to recognize osteopathic neurosurgery board certification as equivalent to allopathic board certification.
