Other Opportunities

Approved by MMET for PRA Category I CME Credits

Our ten educational podcasts offer insight and empathy about subjects that are hard to talk about because of stigma, shame and silencing. Each podcast includes highlights from conversations with clients, caregivers and experts describing what it is like to live with clinical issues that are marginalized. Recent research shows that listeners feel more understanding and confidence addressing these subjects after hearing these shows.  Listen at (or at the links below) then click on the “Questions” tab to register, fill out the evaluation, pay the $30 per listening hour, and print out a certificate that gives you a permanent record of your CME credit. If you are a member of the Maine Association of Psychiatric Physicians, you can receive your CME credit for free. We hope you enjoy these heartfelt interviews and incorporate the wisdom, courage and recommendations into your work.

Journal Club

MAPP journal club is open to all psychiatrists and psychiatric APRNs interested in participating or receiving journal club readings, and regardless of MAPP membership. Our Journal Club started March 2006 and meets monthly at various locations. You can join in person, or participate by vidoeconference (contact Dr. Jeff Barkin at [email protected] or Dr. David Moltz at [email protected] for more information about remote participation). An opportunity to meet with your colleagues, journal club is focused on directed reading of selected contemporary papers in psychiatry. With a wide focus of topics, we also emphasize methods and research design to help members learn to interpret clinical trials.

Although we meet in person in Portland, other local area groups, such as in central Maine, are developing. All papers are distributed via the MAPP Journal Club listserv’s email to allow participants from all over to join. You can subscribe to the MAPP Journal Club listserv here. Links to abstracts of Journal Club articles and other past content can be found on the Past Journal Club Topics archival page.
