CNS Guidelines Initiative
Clinical practice guidelines are essential in helping clinicians confront a rapidly changing healthcare environment and improve patient outcomes. The CNS Foundation Guidelines Initiative supports the CNS infrastructure in developing and disseminating high quality evidence-based guidelines. Donations fund the production and dissemination of high-quality, evidence-based, clinical practice guidelines.

The CNS Foundation encourages the funding of observerships to allow young surgeons from overseas to visit American institutions for mentorship and extended learning opportunities. These exchanges help the neurosurgical community build collaborative relations with our international partners. Through these efforts, the CNS Foundation will begin to philanthropically extend our support where the neurosurgeon-to-patient ratio is critically low.

From leaders of large medical institutions to the youngest early career practitioners, one of the most pressing responsibilities in the medical field is to increase inclusivity by improving the collective practices for diversity, equity, and inclusion. The CNS Foundation funds a portfolio of awards to support programs for underserved student education, research as well as the Future Women Leaders in Neurosurgery Scholarship
The CNS Foundation is grateful for its partnership with Congress of Neurological Surgeons, The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH). Together, these organizations fund the biennial NINDS/CNS Getch Scholar K12 Award, one of neurosurgery’s most prestigious awards. The pillar also includes the Cerebrovascular Section / CNS Foundation Young Investigator's Award.
