Purpose: The CCPS CME Committee, as a functioning committee of CCPS, has as its goal the provision of educational activities in order to maintain and improve the clinical competency and performance of its members, mandated by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) as a necessary component of maintenance of certification, in compliance with the Essentials and Standards of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
Target audience: Psychiatrists, psychiatric members-in-training (MIT), other physicians, and associated healthcare providers.
Content areas: The research, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of psychiatric disorders.
Types of activities provided: An annual conference consisting of plenary didactics, case presentations, panel discussions and workshops (Element 2.1).
