ACLP offers a self-assessment component that can earn CLP 2020 attendees up to eight (8) hours of maintenance of certification (MOC) credits. These credits reflect: the time you put into the test itself; the time you will spend reviewing the answers; and the time you intend to devote at the meeting to following up your questions. Eight hours is the average most people would spend for a test this size.
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 Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry. The self-assessment is free for all registrants.
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.
For more information about MOC and the self-assessment requirement, visit this page of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology website: http://www.abpn.com/maintain-certification/maintenance-of-certification-program/. A handy guide prepared by ABPN can be downloaded from https://www.abpn.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/ABPN-Guide-to-MOC.pdf
How it works:
All test-takers are emailed test results and an MOC credit certificate immediately after completing the test.
Meeting attendees registering after October 21 will be provided access to the self-assessment test prior to the meeting but will not receive the aggregated test analysis until after the test closes permanently on November 30th.
If you registered for the meeting and do not have the link to access the online test, or if you have taken the test and do not have your results or your confirmation documentation, please contact the Academy office at info@CLpsychiatry.org
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.
