March 2021 Volume LVI Number 2


Qualifying Examination Prep Study Club

January 2021 Volume LVI Number 1

Due to the COVID 19 Pandemic, the AAPD made the difficult decision to cancel the QE Prep Course in person course that was set to take place in February 2021. The health and safety of our members, speakers and staff are our top priority, which drove us to make the decision.
The ABPD will still be hosting the Qualifying Exam as of now, set to take place in May 2021. Please check their website for the most up to date information.
The AAPD would still like to provide those preparing for the Qualifying Exam opportunities to study and prepare the best they can. We are excited to share that in spring 2021 we will host the "Qualifying Examination Prep Study Club." The Qualifying Examination Prep Study Club will be an enhance- ment to the pre-recorded QE Prep Course that is available in the Education Passport. This course was recorded in 2020 and includes 20.5 CE Credits as well as the in-depth lectures on the topics specifically relating to the exam. We strongly recommend you take this course before attending the QE Prep Study Club.
The QE Prep Study Club will be February through April and it allows you the opportunity to connect with the QE Prep speakers on specific topics. You will have the ability to submit questions for the speakers and it will be an informal session that will help you in your final preparation for the course. This Study Club is focused on answering your concerns relating to the topics, so it is essen- tial you submit questions ahead of time.
Please note these speakers aren’t affiliated with the ABPD or the exam itself, they are merely here to help you study and prepare for the exam. They aren’t here to provide EXACT test questions or answers, this is all just a supplemental study tool and in no way guarantees a specific score on the exam. It is up to the attendee to use these tools the AAPD has provided for their own study preparation.
