The teams will face off in a "Jeopardy"-style competition about medicine and patient care at APA's annual meeting in San Francisco on Tuesday, May 19, at 5 p.m. in the Moscone Center. Each team will receive $5,000 to cover the cost of traveling to the annual meeting.

The MindGames competition began with a preliminary qualifying phase, in which residency programs chose a team of three residents to take an online quiz with questions based loosely on the ABPN Part 1 content outline and additional questions on neurology and psychiatry history. Each team had to answer 150 online questions in 60 minutes, with the top three scoring teams advancing to the finals. Glen Gabbard, M.D., returns as the moderator and host of the final competition.

MindGames is a collaboration between APA and the American College of Psychiatrists and supported by an unrestricted educational grant from AstraZeneca.
