Notice on Self-Assessment CME
In accordance with ABPN regulations, the method for obtaining self-assessment (SA) maintenance of certification (MOC) CME credit through The Carlat Psychiatry Report has changed.
We are now offering a NEW self-assessment CME product that consists of 12 monthly issues of The Carlat Psychiatry Report, plus a bonus 120+ page Medication Fact Book. This inclusive product is $377 and is worth 18 Category 1 CME credits and 8 ABPN SA credits.
The subscription can be purchased at any time in 2014, but all tests must be taken by December 31, 2014, at which time SA credit will be awarded. Current TCPR subscribers who wish to switch to the SA subscription may be eligible for a pro-rated price. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 866-348-9279.
The regular $109 TCPR subscription is still available to those who do not need ABPN SA credit. Consult the table below for the differences between subscriptions.
