Why join the New York State Neurological Society?

This question goes to the heart of an earlier question that you had to answer in your life, “Why did you become a neurologist?” Every practicing neurologist had to answer that question when they decided to pursue a neurology residency.

No matter how different our reasons for becoming neurologists are, we have a common bond based on our decision to practice the stimulating science, and sometimes art, of neurology. However, sometimes the practice of neurology is different than we thought it would be. The business of neurology is not the same as the study of neurology. The business of neurology is malleable and molded by the economic environment in which we work.

While sometimes we may feel like we have no control over these influences on our profession, that is simply not the case. By organizing, neurologists can influence these pressures being exerted on our profession and together seek beneficial change.

The New York State Neurological Society (NYSNS) is an organization of New York neurologists who, despite the sometimes challenging environment in which we work, enjoy the specialty of neurology and who attempt to influence the pressures being exerted on our profession by joining together and advocating for positive change. As neurologists, we believe that what we do is important to fight for, and also to enjoy, because of its uniqueness. We specialize in the organ system that makes us consciously aware of who we are and what we are doing. We have strength in numbers and can influence the healthcare industry and the government through advocacy. We also educate ourselves about the nervous system, its diseases and its treatments, through academic conferences.

We look forward to having you join us. Together, the greater we grow, the more we can share diverse perspectives and ideas and influence the pressures that are being exerted on us.
