Recognizing the fundamental congruence between behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry, the Joint Committee on Subspecialty Certification of the American Neuropsychiatric Association (ANPA) and the Society for Behavioral and Cognitive Neurology (SBCN) assert that these historically separate but parallel disciplines can be merged into a single subspecialty area of medicine: Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry. The authors first describe the historical background for the development of this medical subspecialty. Second, the goals and objectives for training in Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry are outlined. Finally, a core curriculum for fellowship training in Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry developed by SBCN and the ANPA is presented.
