International Outreach

One of the priorities of the Peripheral Nerve Society (PNS) is the education and training of clinicians, scientists, and healthcare professionals from around the globe. The PNS is vested in increasing the involvement and membership from those joining the PNS from low and middle-income economies. Current PNS international outreach efforts include, PNS sponsored teaching courses held in various locations around the globe, PNS funded training grant opportunities, Annual Meeting travel grants, and other educational resources. If you have a new idea or are interested in getting involved, we invite you to contact us at info@PNSociety.com.
