2013 APA Annual Meeting Self-Assessment in Psychiatry: Free for Registrants
The American Psychiatric Association has developed a free self-assessment activity for registrants to use in conjunction with the APA Annual Meeting that can help physicians make the most of the learning opportunities at the meeting. The 100-question examination is designed to help practicing psychiatrists assess their level of knowledge regarding current psychiatric practice and clinical advances in the field. After completing the exam prior to the meeting, a physician will receive feedback about areas of strength and weakness in his or her medical knowledge, and can create an individualized learning program of sessions to attend at the Annual Meeting in San Francisco from May 18-22. Participants are able to earn up to 8 hours of AMA PRA Category 1 Credit ™ and fulfill a self-assessment component of Maintenance of Certification.
The self-assessment is internet-based, featuring board-type questions and a rationale and reference for each answer. Annual Meeting registrants are auto-enrolled and notified by email within 2-4 weeks of registration. Available at www.apaeducation.org.
The American Psychiatric Association is accredited by the ACCME the provide continuing medical education for physicians.
This Self-Assessment CME activity is approved by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) for MOC Part 2.
