For most psychiatrists, the CME credit requirements are self-explanatory. Many doctors, however, are less familiar with Self-Assessment (SA) credits. SA credits are earned from CME activities specially approved by the ABPN. These activities include a Self-Assessment pre-activity examination. These examinations show you how your peers performed on each question, and provide explanations and further resources for reading as well. SA activities can be thought of as a special, higher type of CME, so you still earn traditional Category 1 CME by participating in SA activities.
Meet Your Annual CME & SA Requirements – In Zero Extra Time.
CMEtoGO is an audio lecture series, available on CD and MP3, that allows you to meet all your annual ABPN CME and Self-Assessment requirements while taking zero extra time out of your life. Because you can listen to lectures during your commute in the car, you do double duty, turning those wasted minutes sitting in traffic into constructive learning.
Catch Up on SA & CME Credits if You’re Behind!
Even though CMEtoGO covers all your annual CME and Self-Assessment requirements – that may not be enough. Because of the rapid expansion of SA requirements with little warning, many psychiatrists need to play catch up. Choose as many ABPN-approved Online Courses for Self-Assessment as you need, then get caught up at your convenience while watching online lectures covering practical, engaging topics.
PIP is a continual process of documenting current patient cases, comparing current treatment approaches with best practices, and soliciting feedback on clinical performance. To do this you go through three steps – assessing, improving, and re-measuring performance.
Each PIP Unit consists of a Feedback Module and a Clinical Module. In Feedback, doctors survey patients and peers, compare the results with best practices, and create a performance improvement plan. Doctors must also re-measure to determine if improvements have been made. In the Clinical Review Module, doctors review patient charts, compare the data with best practices, and create a performance improvement plan. Another chart review is conducted to determine if improvements have been made.

Cognitive or recertification examinations have been in the MOC process since 1994. Psychiatrists are required to sit for this examination within 10 years of their previous certification or MOC date; passing this exam extends their Certification another 10 years.
