The Program

What is included in the Psychiatry Redefined Fellowship?

The Fellowship program includes the following components:

  • 2 years of unlimited access to all courses / course materials
  • 1 year of bi-monthly Group Supervisions (24 sessions total)
  • Two 1-on-1 Faculty Mentoring Sessions in first year (two 45min sessions)
  • 2-year membership in Psychiatry Redefined Listserv
  • Complimentary access to 2 Psychiatry Redefined conferences in first year

Can I work through the program at my own pace?

The Psychiatry Redefined Fellowship blends self-paced, self-directed study with guided Group Supervision and training led by renowned faculty. You can watch online course lectures and review course materials anytime, and at your own pace. You have two years of access to Fellowship curriculum and materials, so you can set your own schedule for general study.

Group Supervisions follow the 12-month syllabus schedule, with each month dedicated to a different course and topic. We recommend that Fellows join as many Group Supervisions (live sessions conducted via Zoom) as 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. If you are unable to join a given Supervision you will be able to access the session recording later via your Learning Management System (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 cyclical monthly schedule. 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.

The 24/7 access to all course materials provides flexibility in structuring general study schedules, learning styles, and personal preferences. Additionally, bonus courses may be viewed and accessed at any time during the 12-month access period.

Are there any required components of the program?

Completion of all courses and course content listed within the Core Curriculum (12 courses/43 hours) Psychiatry Redefined Professional Fellowship are required in order to claim eligibility to receive a program completion diploma and (optional) inclusion in the PR Provider Directory.

  • Fellows have two (2) years of access to all courses and course materials; fulfillment of these completion requirements may be claimed anytime during these two years.
  • Completing all courses of the Core Curriculum and claiming eligibility for a diploma is entirely optional.
  • Upon completion of these required components, you may request a Completion Review to obtain your diploma. To learn more about this process, please review the questions listed under our Program Completion/Diploma FAQs section below.

What are the optional components of the program?

The following components of the Professional Fellowship program are optional adjuncts to learning available to all program registrants. While not required to claim program completion or receive the Psychiatry Redefined Professional Fellowship Diploma, they represent valuable opportunities to expand and enhance knowledge. Thus, we strongly encourage all Fellows to watch and/or participate in the following:

  • Additional Courses: In addition to the courses comprising the Core Curriculum, Fellows enjoy unlimited access to the Bonus Courses available in the online course library. This generally includes new courses* added to the course library during their term of enrollment. (*Unless not approved for the Fellowship.)
  • Participation in 24 Group Supervision sessions (live or prerecorded viewings of Supervision sessions)
  • Participation in two (2) 1-on-1 Faculty Mentoring Sessions: These sessions may be scheduled anytime during the first year of your enrollment term.
  • 1-year membership in the PR Listserv : The Listserv provides Fellows with an open forum wherein they may connect with peers from around the world, engage in discussions, ask questions of their peers and PR Faculty, and present cases. Many Fellows convey that the perspectives and knowledge they have gained through the participation in the Listserv represents an invaluable component of their overall Fellowship learning experience.
  • Complimentary registration to any Psychiatry Redefined event (conferences/symposiums): Dedicated to the advancement of functional psychiatry, Psychiatry Redefined regularly hosts scientific conferences involving experts from various fields. Registered Fellows are eligible for complimentary registration to any PR event during the two-year term of study.

Do I need to pass tests or quizzes along the way?

Not necessarily. You only need to complete and pass quizzes if you wish to obtain CME credits for CME-approved courses. Only CME-approved courses have quizzes. If you do not plan to report any CME credits, then testing is not required 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.

Will I receive a diploma upon completion of the program?

Fellows who complete all modules of all required courses (comprising the Core Curriculum) are eligible to receive a diploma of program completion. For more information on program completion, certificates and diplomas, please see the Program Completion/Diploma FAQ section below.

How long are the 1-on-1 Private Mentoring Sessions with PR Faculty?

Each mentoring session is 45 minutes in length.

How do I schedule my 1-on-1 Mentoring Sessions?

To schedule a 1-on-1 mentoring session, email a request for a 1-on-1 to the Fellowship Coordinator at jcdimino@psychiatryredefined.org). The Fellowship Coordinator will then connect you with your assigned PR Faculty mentor, who will contact you directly to arrange a consult.

Mentoring sessions may be conducted via phone or web chat, according to the preference(s) of Fellow and Faculty member.

Please note: Mentoring sessions must be scheduled within the first year of your program term. For example, if you enroll in May 2021, you must schedule your two 45min sessions no later than May 2022.

Can I carry (or ``roll over``) any unused Mentoring sessions into the 2nd year of my term?

No. The Mentoring sessions are intended to augment the intensive training, inclusive of both courses (self-paced) and Group Supervisions, that are included in the first year of the Fellowship program. It is our policy that these sessions be claimed and scheduled within this first year of your enrollment, such that you receive 1-on-1 guidance as you are introduced to Psychiatry Redefined’s functional psychiatry models.

How do I communicate with other Fellows in the program?

All registered Fellows will be included in the 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 tol foster growth and education. Participation in Listserv discussions, while not mandatory, is strongly recommended, as it allows for dynamic engagement with like-minded peers and our founder, Dr. Greenblatt.

Yes! The Professional Fellowship is not only an educational experience, but a collaborative one. Learning how to apply your knowledge in real-life clinical contexts and improve patient outcomes is part of our guiding principles. Fellows are encouraged to present clinical cases for discussion, to stimulate group discourse and glean valuable insights from Dr. Greenblatt.

Dr. Greenblatt maintains active participation in this email forum, and will comment on cases presented therein.
  • Group Supervisions: These live group sessions provide another opportunity to present clinical cases and ask questions. Q&A is built into the timetable for every Group Supervision, and the Faculty member leading the Supervision (Dr. Greenblatt) will answer questions pertaining to the topic at hand. Learn more about Group Supervisions.
  • Submitting Questions: Questions may be submitted directly to the Faculty member moderating the Group Supervision via the Zoom tool. Alternatively, you may submit questions and/or cases ahead of time to the Fellowship Coordinator Jennifer Dimino at jcdimino@psychiatryredefined.org, who will provide them to the relevant Faculty member leading the upcoming Supervision Q&A.
    • Fellows who choose to submit patient data, test results, testing forms, and other documents should take care to redact or remove any and all potentially identifying information BEFORE submitting.

Group Supervisions

How do I join the Group Supervisions?

Group Supervisions are held mid-week (usually Wednesdays). The Fellowship Coordinator will email all Fellows a unique link through which they can join the live Group Supervision via the Zoom video conferencing service platform. The coordinator will also confirm the exact date and start time upcoming sessions. This email is typically sent 5-6 days before each new Supervision date. At the appropriate date and time, simply click the link to join the Supervision webinar in real-time.

I see ``Recommended Readings`` listed on the Syllabus; do I have to read these ahead of each Supervision?

As many of our Fellow enjoy delving deeper into various topics, we provide academic and professional articles to Fellows as optional adjuncts to learning. These are available upon login to the Learning Dashboard, found within each course and listed after all course modules (in the online course player).

These articles have been carefully selected such that they correspond with each month’s Core Curriculum course / Supervision topic, and invite a deeper understanding of the some of the concepts that will be presented during Supervisions.

These Recommended Readings, however, are not required for completion of the Fellowship, nor are they required for Supervision attendance and participation.

Please see the CMEs section of the FAQs page (below) for more information.

How can I receive a diploma certifying my participation in the Fellowship?

To receive a diploma, Fellows must complete all modules of all courses that comprise the Core Curriculum. (The Core Curriculum totals 12 courses representing 43 hours of content.)

Completing all courses of the Core Curriculum and claiming eligibility for a diploma is entirely optional.

At any point during the term of their enrollment, any Fellow who has completed watching all modules of all Core Curriculum courses may email a request for a Completion Review to the Fellowship Coordinator at jcdimino@psychiatryredefined.org. If the review confirms completion of all required courses, a diploma will be mailed to that Fellow at whatever address is on file for him/her.

What is a Completion Review, and how long will this take?

A Completion Review entails members of the Psychiatry Redefined administrative team reviewing and confirming Fellow online activity within the online learning dashboard. Per Fellowship policy, the release of a diploma is contingent upon the completion of all modules (video lectures) of all courses in the Core Curriculum – or, in other words, the viewing of all module lectures, in their entirety, of all courses of the Core Curriculum.

  1. To request a Completion Review, please email the Fellowship Coordinator at jcdimino@psychiatryredefined.org.
  2. A Completion Review may take up to one (1) week to process.
  3. The Fellowship Coordinator will email you with confirmation of the review findings as soon as possible. If the review confirms your completion of required course content, your diploma will be sent out to the mailing address we have on file for you.

Will Psychiatry Redefined track my total course hours through the duration of the Fellowship?

No. Fellows who wish to track their course, Supervision, and/or Mentoring hours are responsible for doing so as they progress through the Fellowship. (To assist in your progression through the courses, the PR Learning Dashboard automatically tracks course and module progress, and saves upon exiting the system.)

Will my diploma be mailed to me?

Yes; once completion of all required Core Curriculum content has been verified by the Fellowship Coordinator, the Psychiatry Redefined team will mail you one (1) diploma to mark this outstanding achievement.

The diploma will be sent via postal mail to whatever address we have on file for you.

IMPORTANT: It is your responsibility to inform Psychiatry Redefined of any change of name, degree(s), and/or address during the term of your Fellowship.

I am in my second year of the Fellowship – can I still claim eligibility to receive a diploma?

As long as you have completed all modules of all courses in the Core Curriculum (required courses), yes!

Within your two-year term (24 months) of access to the online learning dashboard, you are free to progress through courses at your own pace and according to your own schedule. So, regardless of whether you complete the required courses in month #8 or your Fellowship or month #23, you may claim your diploma pending verification of required course completion.

For additional information, please see FAQs on Program Completion / Diplomas.

Will I be notified in advance of the end of my enrollment term?

Yes. Approximately one (1) month prior to the conclusion of your two-year term of course access, you will receive notification from the Fellowship Coordinator.

We ask all new registrants to complete and return the questionnaire promptly, as administration uses this information to establish fellow profiles and grant access to the Fellowship listserv.

I registered for the Fellowship mid-month; how is my two-year term of access calculated?

We calculate enrollment term based on the month during which you initially register for the Fellowship. For example, whether you register June 1st or June 15th, 2021, your enrollment term will conclude on June 30th, 2023.

I recently enrolled and I'm overwhelmed with all this new information; are there resources available to help me?

We appreciate that immersion into a novel program of study can occasionally be overwhelming, and that Fellows who may not have prior experience in functional medicine theory or application may initially feel a bit inundated.

Rest assured that there are multiple resources at your disposal to help ease you into your program of study:

  • All newly enrolled Fellows are encouraged to attend a Fellowship Orientation webinar. These optional webinars are conducted monthly, and intended to serve as an introductory guide to the program. Hosted by Dr. Greenblatt and/or other members of the PR Faculty, these Orientation webinars will review key components of the Fellowship, and provide ample time for open-forum Q&A. (Please see the following FAQ for Orientation details.)
  • Any questions you have may be posted for peer feedback and discussion in the Listserv forum.
  • You may always submit questions via email to the Fellowship Coordinator at jcdimino@psychiatryredefined.org.
  • You may schedule two (2) private 1-on-1 Mentoring sessions with members of the PR Faculty anytime during your first year, at your discretion. (Please view the Program Basics section to learn how to schedule your mentoring sessions.)

How do I join a Fellowship Orientation webinar?

  • Upon two (2) additional unsuccessful payment attempts and/or we do not receive any reply from you within one (1) week of notifying you of the failed payment attempt, your account status will be deemed “past due” and you will lose access to all courses, course materials, and program sessions until the full balance of the outstanding payment is successfully processed in full. Once all outstanding payments are processed your account status will be returned to “active” and program access will be restored.

For inquiries related to billing information update and changes, please contact Fellowship Coordinator Jennifer Dimino at jcdimino@psychiatryredefined.org

Psychiatry Redefined offers 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 happens if I miss the refund deadline?

Psychiatry Redefined does not offer refunds on Fellowship program fees after the refund deadline.  However, we do understand that some registrants may need to pause their participation in the program due to circumstances beyond their control. For this reason, the Fellowship was created for optimal flexibility. The Psychiatry Redefined fellowship is a self-paced program with no firm deadlines on coursework.  Combined with 24-7 online access from virtually any location, the program gives Fellows the opportunity to speed up, slow down, pause, or resume study at their own discretion. Once enrolled, you have full access to course materials for one (1) year, providing ample flexibility to work around any unexpected life events.

If unexpected life events make it necessary for you to pause your Fellowship training, let us know, and we’ll work with you to accommodate your needs in accordance with program Terms & Conditions.

What happens if I have to drop out of the program halfway through?

We take pride in providing each Fellow with a highly personalized learning experience, and want to ensure a successful education and journey. With twelve (12) months of 24/7 access to online courses and Group Supervisions, the Fellowship model was built to be accommodating to even the busiest healthcare professional. For example, if you miss a monthly course or Supervision, you can watch a recording of said session later at your convenience.

However, we do understand that some registrants may need to pause their participation in the program due to circumstances beyond their control. If unexpected circumstances require that you pause your Fellowship training, please let us know, and we’ll work with you to accommodate your needs in accordance with our program Terms & Conditions.

If I enroll months after open enrollment begins, will I receive a discount for the program content that I ``missed``?

Essentially, you cannot miss monthly courses with our rotating, year-long program model. Our Fellowship curriculum is cyclical, so we would not offer a discount in this scenario.

Registrants receive a full 12-months of unlimited access to all course materials beginning on the date of their first Group Supervision. Each month of the calendar is dedicated to a different course and topic. This means each Fellow will progress through every monthly course and Group Supervision (live discussion) topic until he/she has completed all twelve of the core curriculum courses, regardless of the registration date. Any monthly courses or Group Supervisions you initially miss will repeat during your specific 12-month access period. For example, if you register in May, your 12 months of access will bring you full-circle, providing you access to courses, material, and Group Supervisions through next May.

Can I opt-out of a course to receive a discount on the Fellowship program cost?

No. Our Professional Fellowship has been designed as an integrated educational program, blending web-based coursework, live Group Supervision and case consultation, and peer forum interactions, to provide Fellows with a comprehensive, progressive learning experience. Each component is intended to build upon previous coursework.  For this reason, we do not allow Fellows to “opt out” of individual courses within the program.

For those who wish to customize their own learning experience or who may be interested in specific mental health topics, single educational courses  are available for purchase.

I do not want to claim CME credits. Can I get a discount on CME-approved courses featured in the Fellowship?

No. Obtaining CME credit through this Fellowship is optional and determined by each participant. It is not required that you claim CME credits for courses accredited by the American Academy of Family Physicians. If you do not want CME credit, you are not required to complete the necessary CME components. If you wish to claim CME credit for each CME-approved course, you will complete a number of required quizzes, questionnaires, and evaluations for said courses.

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 Course Dashboard (LMS)?

No; 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 benefits of our Learning Management System (LMS) is 24/7 access for 365 day, from virtually any location. Fellows can log into their member dashboard on the LMS from a PC, tablet, cell phone, or laptop, and continue their studies when most convenient for them.

What 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

Is there a way to maintain access to my student dashboard, course materials, and the Listserv after my 2-year term ends?

Yes! Fellows may extend their access to the PR Learning Dashboard (educational platform/LMS), and all courses and material for another year upon completion of the Fellowship program by purchasing the Extended Access Subscription. Fellows may extend their access to the PR Listserv for another year upon completion of the Fellowship program by purchasing an Annual Listserv Subscription.

Otherwise, access to the the PR Learning Dashboard (the LMS educational platform with courses/materials) and PR Listserv will expire two years from the date of your first Group Supervision training.

Please email Fellowship Coordinator Jennifer Dimino at jcdimino@psychiatryredefined.org for more information about these subscription options. Please note that these extended subscriptions are only available to those who have completed the Professional Fellowship.

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 here
  • Integrative Medicine for Anxiety (5 credits); view the course here
  • Integrative Medicine for ADHD (4 credits); view the course here
  • Functional and Integrative Medicine for Anorexia Nervosa (4 credits); view the course here
  • Functional & Integrative Medicine for Managing Medication Side-Effects (2.5 credits); view the course here

Do I have to claim and report CMEs for CME-approved courses when participating in the 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, you must complete, submit and score a passing grade for said course quizzes. The minimum passing grade for quizzes is 70%. If you score below 70% on your first attempt, you may revisit the module lecture (with the online course player), then retake the quiz.

If you do not wish to claim CME credits, then you do not need to pass each quiz. Remember: These quizzes are meant to reinforce knowledge gained in course lectures, and should be viewed as an adjunct to learning.

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
  • Complete the Course Evaluation for that course

(Please note: The CME accreditation requirements listed above may be accessed and purchased for a separate fee of $25 only upon completion of said CME online program. Please see the question below for further details regarding these separate accreditation components.)

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

At this point, you will be able to report and claim your CME credits to the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) if you are a member of AAFP, or to your specific board (if your board has approved the credits). *If you are not a member of AAFP, be sure to send the AAFP credit equivalency statement to your board to request approval.  

How do I view and complete module quizzes, questionnaires and evaluations for CME courses?

CME accreditation requires the completion of course quizzes, a Registrant Questionnaire, and a Course evaluation for every CME-approved course (please see the question above for further details). These required accreditation components are available for a separate fee of $25*.

To begin, please register for and complete your desired CME-approved course. The necessary access and purchase instructions for these components will be provided upon completion of your CME-approved course training.

CME accreditation components are not available for purchase without the completion of said CME course. If you have completed a CME course and have questions about accessing the aforementioned accreditation components, please email cme@psychiatryredefined.org. PR admin will then verify your completed online coursework and can provide the necessary instructions for accessing further accreditation materials in the learning dashboard.

*Unless enrolled in a separate PR program that includes certification courses as part of the pre-paid program curriculum (i.e., Fellowship in Functional Psychiatry, ADHD Intensive, All-Access Subscription, CME/CE Bundles, Course Bundle, etc). If you have already registered and enrolled in a program with multiple courses, please check your student learning dashboard to determine whether you are already pre-enrolled in a certification course.

Do I have to complete a Registrant Information Questionnaire and Course Evaluation for every CME-approved course for which I want to claim CME credit?

Yes, per AAFP policies and requirements you must complete a Registrant Information Questionnaire and Course evaluation for every CME-approved course for which you want to claim CME credit.

Do I have to complete all tests and evaluations in one sitting?

No. 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 at your own pace. If you need a break after finishing the first quiz, for example, you may pause; you may then return to the course player, and you can pick up where you left off.

How do I report CME credits to the AAFP?

If you are a member of AAFP:
There are 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.
  3. Call the AAFP Member Resource Center at (800) 274-2237 (8:00 a.m.–5:30 p.m. CT).
  4. Mail your completed form to the AAFP Member Resource Center, 11400 Tomahawk Creek Parkway, Leawood, KS 66211-2672.
  5. Complete the post-test or quiz from AAFP-produced self-study programs, such as American Family Physician, Family Practice Management, FP Essentials, and FP Audio. CME credit is added to your transcript on the date the post-test or quiz is completed.

Fellows who are AAFP members 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.

If you are not a member of AAFP:
If you are not a member of AAFP, be sure you have contacted your specific board to receive credit approval status. The AMA/AAFP Credit Equivalency statement can be found here. We suggest you send this information to your board to be sure they will approve the credits.


PLEASE NOTE:
It is the sole responsibility of the registrant to report any/all CME credits in accordance with AAFP policies, rules, and regulations. Psychiatry Redefined (CPRI) is not responsible for requesting approval from any specific boards.

Whether or not you are a member of AAFP, you may contact AAFP with questions or for more information:

Will Psychiatry Redefined report my CME credits for me?

No. Each registrant is responsible for reporting completed CMEs to the AAFP or their specific board in order to claim CME credit, in accordance with all AAFP policies, rules and regulations. All questions pertaining to CME credit reporting for AAFP members should be directed to the AAFP.

I previously completed a Psychiatry Redefined course that is now approved for CME credit. 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 as a member of 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. For those who are not members of AAFP, you should confirm with your board what the deadlines are for reporting credits after course completion.

Where can I learn more about the AAFP CME credit system?

You may visit the American Academy of Family Physicians’ website to learn more about the CME system, as well as policies, protocols, and regulations for CME reporting (for AAFP members). Specific FAQs about CME reporting can be found here.
