Prepare for the psychiatry certification exam offered by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Psychiatry Review for Canadian Doctors covers all the main topics and question formats you’ll find on the exam. More than 500 multiple-choice and short-answer questions will get you ready for the written component, and more than 50 OSCE case scenarios will help you practise for the oral exam.
Unlike most guides on the market, which are adapted from US sources, Psychiatry Review for Canadian Doctors was written exclusively with the needs of Canadian residents studying for the RCPSC psychiatry exam in mind. It can also be used as a supplementary resource for those studying for exams offered by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and the Royal College of Psychiatrists (UK).
