ABPN Certification

Our goal is to prepare residents for ABPN Board Certification in Addiction Psychiatry. To that end, residents must first become certified in General Psychiatry. Each resident  takes an addiction  MCQ exam, uses a procedure logger to ensure that a minimum number of identified scenarios are handled, and takes a self-evaluation to measure comfort levels for a wide variety of cases. Site supervisors use a checklist of skills to observe and evaluate residents handling several patients. These exercises serve to measure skills and knowledge in Addiction Psychiatry while preparing the resident for ABPN certification.
