The Clinical Study Guide for the Oral Boards in Psychiatry has been a trusted and indispensable resource for a decade and this new, 4th edition continues the tradition of currency, relevancy, and rigor. To pass the oral boards in psychiatry, a candidate must possess clinical knowledge that is both broad and deep, something that is difficult to attain for a clinician who is exposed, in daily practice, to a limited number of patients with a limited range of disorders. However, the oral boards are a test of clinical, not theoretical, knowledge, and so the candidate seeking to prepare thoroughly is faced with the critical challenge of mastering the patient interview, contextualizing the findings, and providing a differential diagnosis for disorders which he or she may not have encountered professionally. This book is designed to provide practical clinical information regarding the assessment and treatment of the types of patients most likely to present for the oral boards. Its approach is both encyclopedic and succinct, with an insider's view of what the candidate can expect. Organization is by class of disorder and each section addresses, at a minimum, the DSM-IV-TR diagnostic criteria, clinical issues, etiology, prognosis, differential diagnosis and treatment -- all the pertinent clinical information candidates should know so they will be prepared when asked by the examiners. The author stresses the necessity for thorough preparation and care in the formulation of responses, reflecting the knowledge that if a candidate mentions a particular medication, for example, he or she should expect to be questioned about its indications, dosing information, therapeutic benefits, and potential side effects. Less tangible factors are also discussed, such as demonstrating empathy for the patient, effective interview technique, and the ability to establish rapport. An abundance of tables and figures make complex information easy to understand, and the author has supplied algorithms for treatment protocols to help candidates whose experience with a particular patient group is limited. The oral examination is a difficult and intimidating event that looms large in the clinician's professional development. However, the Clinical Study Guide for the Oral Boards in Psychiatry both simplifies and demystifies the process by compiling and organizing all the material the candidate requires to prepare for the exam. Any candidate willing to invest the time and effort to study this comprehensive guide will surely achieve success.

The field of psychiatry is evolving rapidly specifically in the areas of classification of many psychiatric disorders, psychopharmacology and psychotherapeutics. The new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders: DSM-5 which was introduced in 2013 forms the basis of the new classification system in psychiatry. The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology is also in the process of phasing in DSM-5 criteria to the board examination, such that by 2017 the examination material will exclusively reflect the new manual. As psychiatric trainees and psychiatrists prepare for their certification and recertification examinations using the new classification system, a new board review textbook is imperative to address these changes in order to prepare them for the certification examinations as well as for their clinical practice. To help with this process we have compiled a list of 1000 questions and answers in psychiatry and neurology using the most current information available in the field and using the DSM 5 classification system. This book has been specifically written for the busy professional who does not have the time to access numerous resources necessary to prepare for professional examinations.
