Psychiatry Online Review 2021 (CME VIDEOS)



This comprehensive review is designed to help you pass your Psychiatry board exams as well as to update your clinical knowledge base. Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating new concepts and treatments. The course includes lectures that review the entire field of Psychiatry. As a result, it provides a good review for the ABPN Certifying and MOC exams or for physicians in practice wanting a thorough update. The course includes didactic lectures, discussion of clinical vignettes, embedded questions for discussion at the end of each topic, and dedicated question and answer sessions. Materials and discussion emphasize DSM-V-TR vocabulary and definitions. Many of our previous learners found the course provided them with improved diagnostic and testing strategies, a better understanding of all major disease entities relevant to the practice of general Psychiatry, and helped them recognize specific areas of knowledge weakness for self-study.
