THE GOOD NEWS: The ABPM is allowing a grace period through the year 2021 during which time physicians may take the Addiction Medicine Certification Exam without completing a fellowship. Practice eligibility requirements must be met.

- Answer a few MCQs on your lunch break
- Watch video lectures as you work-out on the stair climber or exercise bike
- Download lectures to your phone ahead of a flight or when out of wi-fi or cellular range

Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
“I just found out that I passed the American Board of Addiction Medicine exam, and feel that the American Physician Institute course can take the credit for this. Once again, it offered a concise, time-efficient way to study for the exam, and in the most palatable format possible! The test wasn’t too difficult after taking the course, and I feel I was overall well prepared.”
Heidi Klingbeil, MD, South Orange, NJ
"The API course was a very valuable time saving and organizing tool to review a large volume of material. In my case, I allotted less time then ideal to this review. Had I not had the API materials, I would not have been able to manage the volume. Very well organized course. I passed."
Daniela Samoil, MD, Lake Oswego, OR
"My review course provided by American Physician Institute (API) was instrumental in helping me mount a recovery after failing an earlier board certification exam attempt. I needed a to make up a major gap in my board preparation which required several months of study and the API course helped me gauge the width and depth of the project. Presenters were very knowledgeable. Scope of the presentations was perfect. This was the most comprehensive of the four courses I used and the most beneficial. Please keep up the great work and thank your staff for their boundless support."
Dan Stuckey, MD, Katy, TX
“The best courses out there for the board exams. Indispensable when prepping for the boards and/or keeping up with your knowledge base.”
