Emergency psychiatry certification Those who attend the National Update on Behavioral Emergencies earn continuing medical education (CME) credits that may be applied towards American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and American Medical Association (AMA) credentials. At this time there is no specific certification for emergency psychiatry services, but the American Association of Emergency Psychiatrists (AAEP) is looking into developing one, says Dr. Scott Zeller, Chief of Psychiatric Emergency Services at Alameda County Medical Center and president of the AAEP. Doing so would be a step towards standardizing emergency psychiatry and improving patient care.
