APM offers a self-assessment component that can earn attendees eight (8) additional CME credits for maintenance of certification (MOC). These credits can apply to any psychiatry certification you hold; you can use them to meet your requirements for General Psychiatry, for example, as well as Psychosomatic Medicine. This self-assessment is free for all APM members and just $20 for non-members registered for the meeting.
How it works:
Meeting attendees registering after October 22 will be provided access to the self-assessment test prior to the meeting, but will not receive test results and analysis until after the meeting.
CME certificates are provided only once the test permanently closes on Nov 30.
You do not need to be seeking recertification to participate in the meeting's self-assessment component. It can be useful even if you are a trainee. All results will be confidential and are for the education of only the test-taker. Results will be shared only in aggregate to help participants understand how they compare to the group.

If you registered for the meeting and did not receive an email with access to the test according to the above deadlines, please contact the Academy office at email@example.com
If you have taken the test and do not have your results or your confirmation documentation, please contact Dr. Bob Boland at firstname.lastname@example.org. The executive office is not involved with the administration of the MOC; emails sent to the executive office inquiring about your MOC results and documentation will be forwarded to Dr. Boland.
The MOC test will be available through November 30. Please ensure you have completed your online test by that date. The test is only available to meeting attendees.
