Applying for MOC Credit
Diplomates of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) have the option to apply 25.50 of the available 33.50 CME credits towards the ABPN requirement for self-assessment (SA) credits. These are not additional CME credits; rather they are credits that an attendee can use to fulfill a portion of the ABPN’s MOC requirements. In order to claim MOC credit, you will need to complete the self-assessment examination. For more information, please refer to the ABPN website. MOC credit is only available for the Update, NOT the Pre-Conference. Attendees who wish to apply for MOC credit should complete the above evaluation first and then complete the self-assessment examination.
Self-Assessment activities are a specific type of CME activity that assists physicians in recognizing their current knowledge base in order to identify specific topics for gaining further knowledge. Registration for the 28th National Psychopharmacology Update allows you to take the Self-Assessment Exam for free. This Self-Assessment exam will allow board-certified individuals to apply the 25.50 CME credits available for the Psychopharmacology Update to the ABPN requirement for Self-Assessment activities. The exam consists of a 25 question online examination designed to help assess your level of knowledge regarding current psychiatric practice and psychopharmacology. The exam will be available until May 19, 2023.
