6-3-2021 The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) has approved the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties’ (UCNS) application for ABPN Self-Assessment credits to be granted for completion of the 2021 UCNS Continuous Certification (C-cert) activities. ABPN approved the 2021 C-cert program as a part of a comprehensive self-assessment (SA) program, which is mandated by the American Board of Medical Specialties as a necessary component of maintenance of certification.
Diplomates will now have the opportunity to earn up to 11 ABPN SA credits in addition to up to 11 AMA PRA Category 1TM credits for meeting the 2021 UCNS C-cert requirements. The total credits earned are based on the actual time spent completing the 2021 C-cert activities up to a maximum of 11 credit hours contingent on passing the C-cert quiz. Confirmation of the credits earned is emailed to diplomates within ten business days of passing the 2021 C-cert subspecialty quiz(zes).
Diplomates eligible for ABPN SA credits should attest to the credits in their ABPN Physician Folios account at www.abpn.com/folios. Questions regarding ABPN certification requirements or ABPN Physician Folios account may be emailed to [email protected]. More information about the UCNS C-cert requirements can be found under Continuous Certification.
