The Psychiatric Pharmacotherapy Review Course offers 20 hours of ACPE-accredited recertification credit each year. If you do not need BCPP recertification credit, you can still earn ACPE credit while benefiting from the targeted focus and high quality of the BCPP recertification programming. Access to the exams ends on December 31, 2021.

The most popular ACPE-only option is to purchase the Psychiatric Pharmacotherapy Review Book with credit. You can earn the credit in smaller pieces and on a longer timeline than the recertification course. If you are interested in purchasing ACPE credit by module from the Review Course, please scroll down to the list of courses below.
