APA’s exciting final round of the MindGames competition for psychiatry residents will once again be a highlight of the annual meeting—not only for residents but for psychiatrists in the audience who want to see how they measure up to their younger colleagues. This entertaining and educational competition pits residents against each other in a test of knowledge about medicine and patient care. The final round will be held on Tuesday, May 8, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown.
Glen Gabbard, M.D., waits to hear an answer at a previous MindGames competition.
MindGames is open to all residency programs in the United States and Canada. The competition begins during the last two weeks of February, when teams of three residents each take a 60-minute online examination consisting of 100 multiple-choice questions. The questions follow the ABPN Part I content outline. The three top-scoring teams with the fastest posted times will send their teams to the MindGames final round at the annual meeting. The names of the three finalist teams will be announced in March at the meeting of the American Association of Directors of Psychiatric Residency Training.
At APA’s annual meeting, the teams will compete in a “Jeopardy”-style game, emceed by Glen Gabbard, M.D. The winner takes home a trophy.
Last year the teams from Boston University School of Medicine, New York Presbyterian/Cornell Campus, and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center competed for the top spot, with Boston emerging as the victor.
MindGames is a collaboration between APA and the American College of Psychiatrists.
