The Committee on Continuing Education provides oversight to the many continuing education (CE) programs in clinical psychopharmacology and related topics relevant to or of possible interest to those interested in the specialty of clinical psychopharmacology. The committee offers the free CE program listed on the main menu as well as monitors and accredits CE programs offered by ASAP/Div. 55, directly or by programs and specialty partnerships with other experts in the field of clinical psychopharmacology whose program and content meet the requirement of ASAP and APA. The committee also monitors other relevant programs related to the specialty of clinical psychopharmacology provided by other APA-approved providers and provides information to members of other CE opportunities related to clinical psychopharmacology.
