It also includes graduates of the PTP programme who have not undertaken an ANS recognised practical exam.
Student membership is available to those training towards their first ANS professional exam.
Commercial membership is available to those employed in the commercial sector with an interest in Clinical Neurophysiology.
Chartered membership is available to members who have been awarded Chartered Scientist status by the ANS.
