Support for APM members taking the Specialty Certificate Exam
As of 1st August 2022 the APM will offer a full discount on purchases of the PallMedpro SCE revision flashcards for APM members who are taking the SCE this year. The flashcards are an unofficial interactive reference resource from Pallmedpro, which you can carry with you on your phone, tablet or laptop. There are over 500 flashcards in 14 categories relevant to the exam, including Management of Emergencies, Cochrane Reviews, NICE, BTS and other UK Guidelines, Aspects of the Law, Pharmacology and more. They’re illustrated, and contain learning quizzes, plus a mock exam to help you test your knowledge. You’ll need an app called Flashcard Hero to view and use the resource (only for Windows, macOS, iPadOS and iOS). They usually cost £30, and we will be able to reimburse the full amount, so the only cost you will need to pay is the £2.99 cost of the flashcard hero app.
You’ll need to fill in a brief claim form with your APM number and also show us a receipt and evidence of exam registration. Please contact email@example.com with any queries.
How to claim your reimbursement
After purchasing the flashcards through the PallMedPro website, and after registering for the SCE examination, APM members should:
