Enrollment / Eligibility

When Does the Psychiatry Redefined Fellowship Begin?

We will be accepting registrations for the Professional Fellowship starting March 1st, 2020. 

Group Supervisions will commence in May of 2020, and will follow the syllabus calendar.  The calendar is cyclic: twelve (12) months with each month devoted to a different topic from the core Fellowship Curriculum.

You can download the Fellowship Syllabus and Course Curriculum by clicking their respective links.

While you will be able to access the Psychiatry Redefined Learning Management System (LMS) dashboard within 72 hours of registration, your twelve (12) months of course access will be calculated based on the date of your first Group Supervision.  For example: if you register on June 1st, 2020, your twelve-month period of open course access will commence on the date of the June 2020 Group Supervision, and will end on the date of the June 2021 Group Supervision.

How Do I Enroll?

Registration for the program will be open as of March 1st, 2020.  Enrollment is open; you can register anytime on or after this date.

The link to the registration page may be found here.

Clicking “Register Now” on the Fellowship page will bring you to the page where you may set up a new Psychiatry Redefined account and process payment for the Fellowship securely.

Access to the Psychiatry Redefined Learning Management System (LMS) dashboard, from which all courses and course materials can be accessed, will be instated within 72 hours of registration.  A confirmation of payment and registration will be emailed to the address that you provide with your registration; please be sure to check your Spam folder for this email.

Once your registration and payment are processed, you will also be sent a Fellowship Questionnaire by the Fellowship Coordinator via email.  This Questionnaire, while informal, is important in that it will allow you to share more about your own practice, your background (if applicable) in integrative and/or functional medicine, and your goals and aspirations for the Fellowship with Dr. Greenblatt. 

We ask all new registrants to complete and return the Questionnaire form as promptly as possible, as this information will help us immensely in establishing their Fellow profiles and adding them to the Fellowship listserv.

Who is Eligible to Enroll?

The Psychiatry Redefined Professional Fellowship is intended for clinicians and other healthcare professionals who have advanced degrees in the medical sciences. 

The program is ideal for: MDs, PsyDs, RNs, NPs, PAs, LPN, PMHNPs, PMHNP-bcs, LCSW, LPC, LMHC

Psychiatry Redefined also welcomes licensed acupuncturists (LAc), licensed/registered dieticians, and licensed herbalists and naturopaths (ND).

While being a direct healthcare provider is not a requirement, prospective registrants should note that this program is geared heavily towards the application of integrative and functional medicine principles, concepts, and approaches in clinical contexts. 

If you are unsure as to whether the Professional Fellowship may be suitable for you, we encourage you to schedule a complimentary phone consultation with Dr. Greenblatt to discuss your qualifications and learning objectives. 

To schedule a consultation, please submit an inquiry to Fellowship Coordinator Jennifer  Dimino at jcdimino@psychiatryredefined.org with the words “Fellowship Consultation” in the subject line.

Do I Need to Have Prior Integrative or Functional Medicine Training?

While familiarity with basic concepts of integrative and/or functional medicine will be helpful for those embarking upon the Psychiatry Redefined Professional Fellowship journey, it is by no means a requirement.  We welcome any and all healthcare professionals who seek to evolve their standards of practice and participate in the evolution of modern psychiatry!

If you wish to…

  • Improve therapeutic outcomes for your patients
  • Learn how to apply objective biologic measurement into psychiatry – the so-called “measureless medicine” – in order to create scientifically-informed, personalized treatment plans for your patients
  • Master balance in practice
  • Treat causes, not just symptoms
  • Embrace a vision for healthcare that integrates mind and body to cultivate lasting health

…then this program may be for you!

All prospective registrants are encouraged to watch Introduction to Integrative Psychiatry, a free webinar presented by Dr. Greenblatt that provides an engaging overview of integrative and functional medicine practices for mental health.  The webinar registration (sign-up is free!) can be accessed here.

I Am a Student; Am I Eligible to Enroll?

Students in training to achieve any of the following qualifications (MD; RN; NP; PA; LPN; PMHNP; PMHNP-bcs; LCSW; LPC; LMHC; ND; LAc, licensed/registered dietician/nutritionist; certified herbalist) and/or an advanced degree in neuroscience, psychiatry/psychology, nutrition/nutritional science or related fields are welcome to enroll in the Psychiatry Redefined Professional Fellowship.

IMPORTANT! Please note: some course content may be challenging for students who have not yet taken postgraduate-level coursework in topics such as cellular biology, neuroscience, and biochemistry/metabolism.  If you are unsure as to whether the Fellowship is appropriate for you at this stage in your academic and/or clinical education, please schedule a free phone consultation with Dr. Greenblatt to discuss program suitability. To schedule a consultation, submit an inquiry to Fellowship Coordinator Jennifer  Dimino at jcdimino@psychiatryredefined.org with the words “Fellowship Consultation” in the subject line.

Is the Training Suitable / Appropriate for International Practitioners?

Yes!  Our web-based Learning Management System permits access to online course materials from virtually any location, and we welcome healthcare professionals from around the world who are inspired to participate in the evolution of modern psychiatry.

How Will I Know if This Program is Right for Me?

The decision to invest precious time and hard-earned money in an educational program to further one’s professional development is a significant one, and we want all those who enroll in the Professional Fellowship program to do so with the utmost confidence.

We invite all individuals considering the Fellowship program to explore the entirety of the Psychiatry Redefined website to learn about our mission, our educational offerings, our esteemed faculty and – of course! – our founder, ISOM Orthomolecular Medicine Hall of Fame inductee Dr. James Greenblatt.

Read our mission statement; browse through some of Dr. Greenblatt’s articles; watch a free webinar (here); ask questions…  Prospective registrants are encouraged to do all of these, and in so doing assess whether the Professional Fellowship may be right for them.

And don’t forget: Dr. Greenblatt offers complimentary phone consultations to anyone considering the Fellowship program!  This is a truly unique opportunity to for prospective registrants to learn about the program from its founder, and determine whether the Fellowship matches their needs as professional learners.

To schedule a consultation, please submit an inquiry to Fellowship Coordinator Jennifer  Dimino at jcdimino@psychiatryredefined.org with the words “Fellowship Consultation” in the subject line.

Fees & Refunds

Do You Offer Discounts for Students?

Psychiatry Redefined a 25% discount on Fellowship registration fees for full-time students as well as medical/psychiatric residents and interns.

If you would like to be considered for the student discount, email Fellowship Coordinator Jennifer Dimino at jcdimino@psychiatryredefined.org.  Please be prepared to provide contact information for your current academic advisor(s) and/or residency supervisor so that we may verify your status as a student/resident/intern.

What is Psychiatry Redefined's Refund Policy on the Fellowship Program?

We have a satisfaction/refund policy that applies to the first fourteen (14) days of the Fellowship program.  After this fourteen (14) day window, refunds will no longer be offered.

Details of the Psychiatry Redefined Professional Fellowship refund policy and applicable Terms & Conditions can be found here.

If Open Enrollment Begins in April and I Enroll in June, Will I Receive a Discount for the Program Content That I Have Missed?

We would not offer a discount in this scenario…because you wouldn’t miss a thing!

Our core curriculum is cyclic.  Group Supervisions are held monthly; each month of the calendar year is dedicated to a different course and topic.  The May Supervision, for example, is about Suicide Prevention, and focuses on material from the Biological Models for Suicide Prevention course.  The month of October is devoted to ADHD; accordingly, the October Group Supervision will review material from the Integrative Medicine for ADHD course.  The Fellowship curriculum and syllabus rotation can be viewed here.

The Fellowship is a 12-month-long program, and registrants enjoy 12-months of unlimited access to all course materials starting from the date of their first Group Supervision.  This means each Fellow will progress through each and every monthly Group Supervision topic until he or she has completed all twelve of the core curriculum courses…regardless of when he or she registers.

A hypothetical example: Let’s say you register June 1st, 2020.  You will receive access to the LMS within 72 hours of registration.  Your first Group Supervision will take place in June, 2020 and will be dedicated to the June course topic of Low-Dose Nutritional lithium; your twelve (12) months of unlimited access to all courses and course materials will begin on this date.  You will progress through the core curriculum, with each month’s Group Supervision dedicated to a different topic, until June, 2021, at which point the curriculum will cycle back to Low-Dose Nutritional Lithium…and you will have completed your year-long Fellowship training.

No matter when you enroll, you will have access to all course materials, lectures, handouts, and Group Supervision recordings as will all other Fellowship registrants, and for the same length of time.

Can I ``Opt Out`` of Certain Courses to Receive a Discount on the Professional Fellowship Program?

No.  The Professional Fellowship has been designed as an integrated educational program, blending web-based coursework, live Group Supervision/case consultation, and peer forum interactions to provide Fellows with a cohesive, progressive learning experience.  Each component is intended to build upon information provided in the last, such that Fellows continuously expand their knowledge base and expertise as they progress.  For this reason, we do not allow Fellows to “opt out” of individual course components of the program.

For those who wish to customize their own learning experience or who may be interested in specific mental health topics, single courses are available for purchase on Psychiatry Redefined.  Please visit https://www.psychiatryredefined.org/view-all-courses/ to learn more.

I Do Not Need to Claim CME Credits; Will I Receive a Discount on CME-Approved Courses?

No.  Fellows who wish to claim CME credit must complete all required module tests and evaluation forms for each CME-approved course for which credit will be claimed.  In other words, pursuing CMEs involves extra work on the part of the learner… course content, however, is the same for everyone.

For this reason, we do not offer discounts on CME-approved courses for registrants who will not pursue CMEs.  Regardless of whether you do or do not claim CMEs for your participation, you will be taking courses of such caliber that they have been approved by the American Academy of Family Physicians for CME credits.

What Happens If I Have to Drop Out of the Program Halfway Through?

We take pride in being able to provide each Fellow with a highly personalized learning experience, and are happy to work with Fellows to help ensure successful journeys through the program.

With twelve (12) months of 24-hour access to online course materials and recorded Group Supervision trainings, the Fellowship easily accommodates the odd ‘life happens’ curveball!  If you miss a Supervision, you can watch a recording of the session later from the convenience of your office, hotel, library (any location that has an internet connection!) – on the go, or from the comfort of your own home.

We understand, however, that some life curveballs are bigger, and may require more significant breaks in program participation.  If unexpected life events make it necessary for you to hit ‘pause’ on your Fellowship training, let us know, and we’ll work with you to accommodate your needs in accordance with program Terms & Conditions.

The Program

Is This Self-Study Course Where I Go at My Own Pace?

The Psychiatry Redefined Fellowship blends self-paced, self-directed study with guided Group Supervision and consultation training led by renowned experts within the fields of integrative psychiatry and functional medicine.  It allows for incredible flexibility on the part of the learner – you can watch online course lectures and review course materials on your own time and at your own pace.  Remember: you have an entire year’s worth of access to Fellowship courses and materials, so you are empowered to set your own schedule when it comes to general study.

Group Supervisions follow the 12-month syllabus schedule, with each month dedicated to a different course and topic (you can view the syllabus rotation here).  We recommend that Fellows join as many Supervision sessions “live” (via GoToWebinar) as they can so that they get the most out of the real-time Q&A with Dr. Greenblatt, who leads and moderates the sessions.  That said, ‘attendance’ at all live Supervision sessions is not a requirement, and if you are unable to join a given Supervision you will be able to access the session recording later via your LMS dashboard.

Do I Have to Listen to Lectures in a Specific Order?

While not a requirement, it is recommended that Fellows proceed through core Fellowship courses in the order that corresponds to the cyclic Group Supervision schedule (you can view the syllabus rotation here).  If you enroll in May, for example, it is recommended that you begin with the Biologic Models for Suicide Prevention course, as the May Group Supervision will be dedicated to Suicide Prevention.

Bonus courses may be viewed/accessed at any time; the 24/7 access that Fellows have to all course materials provides them with an extraordinary amount of flexibility, and empowers them to structure their learning according to their schedules, learning styles, and personal preferences.

How Do I Join the Group Supervisions?

Group Supervisions are held mid-week (usually Wednesdays or Thursdays).  The Fellowship Coordinator will send all Fellows a unique link through which they can join the live Group Supervision via the GoToWebinar application, and will confirm the exact date and start time for the coming session.  This email is typically sent 2-5 days before each new Supervision.

At the appropriate date and time, simply click the link…and you will be able to join the Supervision webinar in real-time.

Is Participation in the Group Supervision Sessions Mandatory?

We recommend that Fellows join as many Supervision sessions “live” (via GoToWebinar) as they can, so that they can get the most out of the real-time Q&A with Dr. Greenblatt.  That said, ‘attendance’ at all live Group Supervision sessions is not a requirement, and if you are unable to join a given Supervision you will be able to access the session recording later via the LMS dashboard.

Do I Have to Pass Tests or Quizzes Along the Way?

Only CME-approved courses have quizzes; taking these quizzes is only a requirement if you intend to claim CME credits for those courses.

If you are not going to be reporting any CMEs, then there is no testing requirement for any component of the Fellowship.

If you will be reporting CMEs, please review the information provided in the CME section of these FAQs carefully.

How Do I Communicate With Other Fellows in the Program?

All registered Fellows will be included in the Psychiatry Redefined Professional Fellowship Listserv, through which they may participate in ongoing group discussions. 

The Listserv establishes a forum through which Fellows can present cases, ask questions, and engage in peer- and faculty-led discussions that together will foster growth and the expansion of knowledge.  Participation in Listserv discussions, while not mandatory, is strongly recommended, as it allows for dynamic engagement with like-minded professional peers and with Dr. Greenblatt.

*Please note: Fellows who participate in forum discussions via the Listserv are responsible for adhering to policies for Patient Privacy and Confidentiality in accordance with all relevant institutional, state, and federal laws. See Fellowship Terms & Conditions.

Will I Be Able to Present / Discuss Questions from Real Clinical Cases?

Yes!  The Professional Fellowship is not only about gaining knowledge – it is also about learning how to apply that knowledge in real-life clinical contexts in order to improve patient outcomes.  For this reason, Fellows are encouraged to present clinical cases for discussion*, to stimulate group discourse and glean valuable insights from Dr. Greenblatt.

Fellows may present clinical cases for group review or ask specific questions about clinical cases via the Listserv;* they are also invited to weigh-in on questions and topics posed by their peers.  Dr. Greenblatt maintains active participation in this email forum, and will be able to view and comment on cases presented therein.

Group Supervisions provide another opportunity to present clinical cases and ask questions.*  Q&A is built into the timetable for each and every Group Supervision, and during this component the Faculty member leading the Supervision (Dr. Greenblatt) will be able to answer questions pertaining to the Supervision topic at hand. 

Questions may be submitted directly to the Faculty member moderating the Group Session live via the GoToWebinar tool.  Or, if you have a specific question that you would like the Faculty member to discuss during an upcoming Supervision Q&A session, you may submit the question and/or case ahead of the Supervision session to the Fellowship Coordinator, who will forward it to the relevant Faculty member.

*Please note: Fellows who participate in forum discussions via the Listserv are responsible for adhering to policies for Patient Privacy and Confidentiality in accordance with all relevant institutional, state, and federal laws. See Fellowship Terms & Conditions.

Will I Receive a Certificate of Participation Upon Program Completion?

Yes!  Each course provides a certificate that can be downloaded upon completion of the final course module.

A Certificate of Fellowship Completion will be also be mailed to each Fellow upon the conclusion of his or her 1-year course of study.

A Certificate of CME activity completion is available to those who intend to claim CME credits for their participation in CME-approved courses.  This certificate will only become available once all required Module tests and course evaluation forms have been completed/submitted for the CME-approved course in question; please see the CMEs section of the FAQs page for more information.

Is There a Way to Maintain My Access to Course Materials Once I Have Completed the Fellowship Program?

Yes!  Fellows have the option of extending their access to the LMS, the Psychiatry Redefined Listserv, and all courses/course materials for another year upon completion of the Fellowship program by purchasing the Extended Access subscription.

Details of the Extended Access subscription can be found here.

Course Access / LMS

How Soon After I Process Payment Will I Have Access to Course Material?

Your member account and login will be activated within 72 hours of registration, at which time you will have full access to all courses and course materials via the Learning Management System (LMS) dashboard.

Do I Need Any Special Software to Access the LMS / Course Dashboard?

Nope!  All you need is a device with internet connectivity and a web browser.

Can I Access Course Material at Any Time?

Yes!  One of the great features of the Psychiatry Redefined Learning Management System (LMS) is that it is up, running, and available to access 24/7/365…and from virtually any location!  Fellows can log in to their member dashboard on the LMS from their PC, tablet, cell phone, or laptop and continue their studies whenever it is convenient for them.

What Do I Do If I Encounter Technical Difficulties With Course Access?

LMS access issues and other technical difficulties should be reported to Fellowship Coordinator Jennifer Dimino at jcdimino@psychiatryredefined.org

Will I Lose Access to My Student Dashboard, Online Course Materials, and the Professional Fellowship Listserv After 1 year `{`from the date of my first Group Supervision`}`? Is There a Way for Me to Maintain My Access?

Access to the LMS will expire one year from the date of your first Group Supervision training.

Access to the Psychiatry Redefined Listserv does not expire; Fellows who complete the program are welcome to continue to participate in peer discussion via this online forum.

Fellows have the option of extending their access to the Psychiatry Redefined Listserv, and the LMS and all courses/course materials for another year upon completion of the Fellowship by purchasing an Extended Access Subscription; details of the Extended Access subscription can be found here.

For individuals who do not register in the Professional Fellowship we offer an All-Access Subscription to Psychiatry Redefined courses.  For an annual fee this subscription provides unlimited access to all courses and course materials for 1 year.  Please visit the All-Access Subscription page on PsychiatryRedefined.org (insert URL) for more information.

CMEs

What PR Courses are Approved for AAFP CME Credits?

As of Spring 2020, Psychiatry Redefined offers three courses that have been approved by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) for Prescribed Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit:

  • Integrative Medicine for Depression (5 credits); view the course page here
  • Integrative Medicine for Anxiety (5 credits); view the course page here
  • Integrative Medicine for ADHD (4 credits); view the course page here

Do I Have to Claim/Report CMEs for CME-Approved Courses If I Participate in the Professional Fellowship?

No; pursuing CME credits for CME-approved courses is entirely optional.

What Entity is the Designated AAFP CME Provider for Psychiatry Redefined?

The designated CME provider for Psychiatry Redefined is: Comprehensive Psychiatric Resources, Inc.

Do I Have to Pass Tests or Quizzes Along the Way?

If you intend to claim CME credits for any of the CME-approved courses, yes.

Quizzes are required components of all CME-approved courses, as are registrant information questionnaires and course evaluations.  A brief quiz comprised of multiple-choice and true/false items is presented for each module of each course; additionally, each course has a course evaluation and a registrant questionnaire.  All of these must be completed and submitted before CME credits can be claimed.

The minimum passing grade for module quizzes is 70%.  If you score below 70% on your first attempt, you may restart the Module lecture with the online course player and then re-take the quiz.  Remember: these quizzes are meant to reinforce knowledge gained by watching course lectures, and should be viewed as an adjunct to learning.

To recap:  in order to fulfill CME requirements for each CME-approved course you must:

  • Complete all Module Quizzes for that course with a passing grade of at least 70%
  • Complete the Registrant Information Questionnaire for that course; and
  • Complete the Course Evaluation for that course

Once all required components have been completed you will be able to access and download a Certificate of CME Completion for that course directly from the course player.

At this point you will be able to report your CME’s to the American Academy of Family Physicians to claim CME credits.

How Do I View/Complete Module Quizzes, Registrant Information Questionnaires, and Course Evaluations for CME Courses?

  1. At the bottom of the navigation pane of your online course player, you will find a tab labeled “Obtain CMEs”
  2. Clicking on “Obtain CMEs” will open up all required Module Quizzes as well as the Registrant Information Questionnaire and the Course Evaluation.

Do I Have to Complete All Tests/Evaluations in One Sitting?

No (something we’re sure all CME-seekers will be relieved to learn!).

Just like the individual modules of the online courses, the Module quizzes – as well as the required Registrant Information Questionnaires and Course Evaluations for CME-approved courses – can be completed according to your schedule.  If you need a break after finishing the first quiz, for example, take it! and when you return to the course player, you will be able to pick up where you left off.

How Do I Fulfill CME Requirements for Each CME-Approved Course?

In order to fulfill CME requirements for each CME-approved course you must:

  • Complete all Module Quizzes for that course with a passing grade of at least 70%
  • Complete the Registrant Information Questionnaire for that course; and
  • Complete the Course Evaluation for that course

Once all required components have been completed you will be able to access and download a Certificate of CME Completion for that course directly from the course player.

At this point you will be able to report your CME’s to the American Academy of Family Physicians to claim CME credits.

 

How Do I Report CME Credits to the AAFP?

The AAFP offers five convenient ways to report credit:

  1. Report your CME online (you must have an existing AAFP member account); you can access the log in page here
  2. Fax your completed CME reporting form or certificate of participation to (913) 906-6075.

Fellows are strongly encouraged to visit the American Academy of Family Physicians’ website (www.aafp.org) to learn more about policies, protocols, and regulations for CME reporting.  FAQs about the CME system and credit reporting can be found here

*PLEASE NOTE:  It is the sole responsibility of the registrant to report any/all CME credits in accordance with AAFP policies, rules, and regulations. 

Will Psychiatry Redefined Report My CME Credits for Me?

No.  Each registrant is responsible for reporting completed CMEs to the AAFP in order to claim CME credit, in accordance with all AAFP policies, rules and regulations.

All questions pertaining to CME credit reporting should be directed to the AAFP (www.aafp.org).

I Completed a Psychiatry Redefined Course Currently Approved for CME Credit a Year Ago; Can I Claim Retroactive CME Credit?

No; CME credits can only be claimed for courses that were completed within the term of AAFP credit approval.

The term of approval for Psychiatry Redefined’s current CME courses began September 1st, 2019.  If you completed any of these courses prior to this date, you cannot claim CME credits.

How Soon After Course Completion Should I Report My CME Credits? Is There a Deadline?

While there is no deadline within which you must report CME credits to the AAFP, registrants who intend to claim CME credits are strongly encouraged to do so as soon as possible after they complete their CME-approved courses and all required course components.

Where Can I Learn More About the AAFP CME Credit System?
