The American Academy of Neurology (AAN) is a medical specialty society that was established in 1948 to advance the art and science of neurology and promote the best possible care for individuals with neurological disorders. Neurology is the branch of medicine that specializes in the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves and the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders. The Academy is dedicated to ensuring appropriate access to neurological care; supporting and advocating for an environment that ensures ethical, high quality neurological care; and supporting clinical and basic research in the neurosciences and related fields. In addition, the AAN is committed to providing excellence in professional education by offering a variety of programs in both the clinical aspects of neurology and the basic neurosciences to physicians and allied health professionals. The Academy's website provides members with information on its practice guidelines, neuroimaging training guidelines, neurology fellowships, and continuing medical education programs. In addition, the AAN's site provides a searchable database of U.S. neurologists; and has an online advocacy newsletter for members. Through its growing public website, www.thebrainmatters.org, the AAN provides information about neurological disorders.
