Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
“I found Dr. Krasuski’s presentations to be well-researched, thorough, pertinent and structured in a way that aided in remembering important details. I passed the geriatric psychiatry board exam with flying colors, thanks to the excellent team at the American Physician Institute.”
M. Sethi, MD, Millburn, NJ
"I am still awaiting result but I am very confident that I should pass it. The Geriatric board course helped me lot. This course is not only very comprehensive , it also orients us how to test our knowledge after acquiring it. There are many topics which are tested in exam but they may not be in our radar when simply studying a text book. Most candidates who did not take course would only know during test that a significant part is comprised of Neurology questions . Overall it is very good course to pass the exam and acquire knowledge."
Javed Ghani, MD, Saint James, NY
“Thank you, Dr. Krasuski for putting this education program together and helping me prepare for this difficult exam. I’m writing this knowing already that I’ve passed the boards. Thank you for your help.”

“Excellent; well-organized home study course which provided me with very timely and concise review of relevant topics. I will definitely recommend this course to others without any hesitation.”
Kuldip Rai Jassal, MD, Parksville, BC
“I wanted to thank you for the excellent review course that was so helpful in my studying for the geriatric psychiatry recertification examination. The test was a very difficult one, and the video lectures and accompanying notebooks were extraordinarily beneficial. The very best lectures were the ones involving dementia/neurocognitive disorder, where you tied together anatomy, functional circuitry, symptoms, syndromes, and diagnoses. It makes a lot more sense to me now than it ever has before. I'm glad that I have the notebooks to refer to in the future. The test was a very difficult one, and let me reiterate it was very difficult. Your help was invaluable. My score was 87 and passing was 71, and I'm relieved that the damnable thing is now behind me. Thank you,”
Jeffrey Danziger, MD, Maitland, FL
“The courses provided a comprehensive review of psychiatry and geriatric psychiatry. I passed the combined MOC exam on the first try. And just as importantly I appreciated the review of the latest material for my practice. I would definitely recommend the course to others.”
Colleen Connor, MD, Norristown, PA
"The course I took for geriatrics through American physician Institute Was Very helpful.If you repeat the course material twice, you will feel ready and confident. I thank you all the staff and instructors to make my life easier. Thank you."
Niaz Mohammad, MD, Portage, MI
