Can you recognize and determine the appropriate treatment for a patient's mental health disorder quickly and correctly? Then face-off against your peers – test your skills in a battle for diagnostic supremacy and go for the gold. Yes, real gold!
For the next five weeks, Psychiatric Times presents the "Diagnostic Champions' Challenge". Each week will feature a set of multiple choice diagnostic dilemmas focused on mental health to test your acumen: we present the problem, you diagnosis it – but you'll only have up to 60 seconds for each question. Each time you diagnose correctly, you'll win points based upon the level of difficulty. Did you make the high-score leaderboard for that week's round? Congratulations! Didn't make it? Try again! Build your skills and take the test as many times as you want, but only your first score counts.
The preliminary rounds take place for the first four weeks. The top 10 scorers for each week (from both the MD and non-MD tracks) will be invited to participate in the "Diagnostic Champions' Final Challenge" – the fifth week's round — to go head-to-head. The top scorer of the finalist round for the MD and non-MD track will – you guessed it – win one ounce of solid gold bullion!
