The Swiss Federation of Clinical Neuro-Societies (SFCNS) was officially founded in 2009. The first stones of its foundation were laid in Montreux at the April 2008 joint meeting of six Clinical Neuroscience Societies, which commemorated the centenary of the Swiss Neurological Society. Following the great success of this meeting, the Swiss Neurological Society (SNS), Swiss Society of Neurosurgery (SSN), Swiss Society of Clinical Neurophysiology (SSNC), Swiss Society of Neuropediatrics (SSNP), Swiss Society of Neuroradiology (SSNR), and Swiss Society of Neuropathology (SSNPath) agreed to come together and form a Swiss Federation of Clinical Neuro-Societies (SFCNS).

The SFCNS aims to formalise and structure the joint political, educational, and clinical research efforts. Regular high-level congresses shall lay the ground for communication and contacts with other medical groups working in the neuroscience field.

The SFCNS is a strong partner for all medico-political challenges in Switzerland. Representing multidisciplinary medical associations and patient groups, the SFCNS is strategically bridging interests. For translational research and education, SFCNS is a cooperative partner of the Swiss Society for Neuroscience. Via targeted projects that primarily involve HSM, the SFCNS paves the way for excellence and advances in neurological health care.
