The Virginia Neurological Society
The Virginia Neurological Society was founded in 1972 with the purpose of advancing the science of neurology in Virginia. The VNS provides its members with a collective voice in matters that concern the practice of neurology and education in the field of neurology. Members are also represented at the state medical society level where legislative and regulatory issues are brought to focus in the area of neurology.
The first meeting of the VNS was held at the Bull and Bear Club in Richmond, Virginia with 28 neurologists in attendance. Today, the VNS has 138 members and continues to grow every year. The highlight of society membership includes the opportunity to attend the VNS Annual Meeting traditionally held at The Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, VA. The 2020 meeting marked the 48th annual meeting giving the Virginia Neurological Society the record for the longest consecutively run meeting of any state society.
The Virginia Neurological Society boasts a long tradition of excellence in education, statewide representation, and comradery and we invite you to join us as we continue to grow, share ideas, and strive to improve the practice of neurology in the state of Virginia.
