Psychiatry Board Reviews 2020 - General Session - CANCELLED

Orlando, FL US
June 25, 2020 to June 27, 2020

This course has been CANCELLED - there will be an online version available soon - See other courses at Psychiatry and Psychology.


Course Director: William V. Bobo, M.D., M.P.H. and Paul E. Croarkin, D.O., M.S.

The Psychiatry Board Review course is unlike any other psychiatry board review course. It is aimed at graduating residents and psychiatrists who are certifying or re-certifying for their American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) boards – as well as psychiatrists looking to increase their overall fund of knowledge. Unlike question banks and online topic reviews, this course intentionally integrates self-assessments, focused lectures, and repeated quizzes – the most powerful tool for increasing knowledge. It applies the best in education science to the processes of mastering board content and draws on the considerable depth of Mayo Clinic faculty in both psychiatry and neurology.


There will be three self-assessments (200 questions each) that will be included as part of your registration fee.  These will be released in early 2020.  

Registration Fees
Physician, Scientist$950
Resident, Fellow, Advanced Practice Provider$775
