According to UEMS rules, a Section may, subject to the agreement of the Council of the UEMS, conditional on the majority of the full Members, create one or more divisions, under the responsibility of the main Section, devoted to the study, promotion and defence of a branch of the specialty or competence, which forms an integral part of its practice, and involves a recognised higher training program.

Divisions can also create European Boards to address scientific and training issues and strengthen cooperation with scientific Societies. They can also prepare training requirements, draft recommendations, adopt statements in their discipline. All documents have to be first approved by the parent Section, then submitted for endorsement by the UEMS Council.

To better understand the history of the Division of Neuroradiology, and the importance of its creation for the development of Neuroradiology in Europe, please read the following article:
