Overview

Clinical Neuropsychiatry

FOCUS, the APA clinical review and continuing medical education journal, is designed as a personal study resource to help practicing psychiatrists keep abreast of significant advances in the field, with particular attention to clinical practice and incorporation of core competencies. The goal of FOCUS is the dissemination of up-to-date information, facilitation of lifelong learning skills, maintenance of certification, and opportunity for self-assessment in order to improve patient care. Each issue, prepared by distinguished faculty who are recognized in their fields, incorporates a CME component. The material can be used effectively by establishing a regular schedule of study.
