Each activity consists of unique questions that test the learner’s knowledge and competence. Feedback on each question is provided immediately following the question, along with references. Peer benchmarking data is provided once the learner completes all questions in the activity. The learner does not have to complete all one hundred questions at once but can “bookmark” their place in the activity and return at a later date.

In order to receive your CME certificate you must successfully complete all 100 questions in the activity and submit the completed evaluation. After completing the evaluation, a print-ready PDF of your CME certificate will reside in the Completed Activities tab, accessed via your MyLearning tab.

Maintenance of Certification

The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology has reviewed these self assessment activities and has approved this program as part of a comprehensive epilepsy program, which is mandated by the ABMS as a necessary component of maintenance of certification.
