May 19, 2022

AAN

Through an ABPN grant, the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) is now providing FREE access to last year’s AAN Fall Conference On Demand, and NeuroSAE 16th Edition to AAN members and ABPN diplomates. They will also have free access to the AAN Patient Safety Education Program starting in mid-July.

  • The AAN will provide to all AAN members and ABPN diplomates free access to the AAN 2021 Fall Conference On Demand through August 15, 2022. The curriculum for the Fall Conference provides quality education programming that will help them stay current and abreast of changes in the field.
  • All AAN members and ABPN diplomates will have access to the NeuroSAE 16th Edition through December 31, 2022. The curriculum for NeuroSAE provides a high-quality self-assessment program that will assist them in recognizing their current knowledge base in order to identify specific topics for gaining further knowledge, as well as resources (e.g., references) to gain that additional knowledge.
  • All AAN members and ABPN diplomates will have access to the AAN Patient Safety Education Program from July 15 until December 31, 2022. The AAN is in the process of updating this module with plans to launch the revised edition in July 2022, which is when free access will begin. The AAN Patient Safety Education Program will provide information on how to identify potential patient safety risks and apply the strategies and methods to mitigate these risks and improve patient safety in their practice.

ABPN diplomates who are not members of AAN, and who do not already have a six-digit AAN ID, will need to create a free non-member AAN account to access the AAN’s Online Learning Center. To get access to the free courses email onlinelearningcenter@aan.com to request an access code for each course. AAN members can log in and register for free without an access code.

For questions regarding any of the three products offered for free from the ABPN grant, please email onlinelearningcenter@aan.com.

ABPN Extends Board Eligibility Policy and Virtual Clinical Skills Evaluations Through June 30, 2022
Due to ongoing issues with in-person clinical experiences at residency training programs, the ABPN has decided to extend its current board eligibility policy through June 30, 2022. Program Directors can be assured that the Board will continue to follow their lead with respect to whether or not a particular resident has completed the specific training needed for graduation. The ABPN will continue to be flexible with respect to senior residents as long as the Program Director agrees.

In addition, through June 30, 2022, the ABPN will continue to accept virtual CSEs completed via a remote conferencing platform such as Zoom for all psychiatry and neurology residents as part of the credentialing requirements to sit for an ABPN initial certification exam.

Programs can enter resident information, including CSEs, into the ABPN preCERT® Credentialing System. We ask that Program Directors please use the preCERT notes section to designate virtual CSEs.

See the original board eligibility and virtual clinical skills evaluations announcements for more information. If you have additional questions, please contact our credentials department at credentials@abpn.com.
