An attending psychiatrist at Mount Auburn Hospital in Maryland, Dr. Antonio Bullon cares for patients who are elderly and who have been admitted for the evaluation and management of neuropsychiatric disorders. Also active within his professional community, Dr. Antonio Bullon belongs to the American Psychiatric Association.

With over 37,000 members, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) organizes a number of programs and events focused on improving member practices and education. One of the organization’s educational resources is the APA Learning Center.

Through the Learning Center, professionals are given the opportunity to meet MOC requirements, learn new skills, and earn CME credits. This can be accomplished by accessing any of the Learning Center’s more than 200 educational activities. The activities offered allow participants to take courses in specific subject areas as well as review books and articles relating to the field. On-demand courses and live events can both be accessed through the Learning Center.

As different activities are completed, the APA Learning Center automatically reflects them on an individual’s APA Transcript. This transcript also allows professionals to record their work from other CME providers through the APA’s External Certificate feature.

All of the APA Learning Center’s activities are available at a minimal cost or for free. Although the Center is available to both members and non-members, the organization does offer special activity pricing to professionals who belong to the APA.
