Addictions and Their Treatment 2014 Enduring Materials

The 2014 Addictions and Their Treatment course is designed to help in the preparation for the ABPN examinations for subspecialty certification and recertification in Addiction Psychiatry. It is relevant for addiction psychiatrists and practicing psychiatrists preparing for recertification. It may also serve as a tool for board review, for PGY-V residents, general psychiatry residents, and for all academic and treatment personnel to stay updated on the most recent trends in the addiction field. It is equally relevant to junior faculty and clinicians as well as experienced practitioners

Both General Psychiatry and Addiction Psychiatry require knowledge of Addiction Psychiatry/Medicine. The expanded (20 hours) course will assist diplomates as they prepare for their Maintenance of Certification (MOC) requirements and/or to anyone preparing for a MOC examination. AAAP will continue to develop CME activities to assist those preparing for MOC.
