“Excellent test preparation for Child Psychiatry Boards and MOC! Many relevant questions with thorough explanations. The interface allows you to customize a practice exam which mimics the real thing! Highly recommended. I plan to use BoardVitals for future re-certification in Adult and Child Psychiatry. ”Brian Rockower
The Maintenance of Certification for Child Psychiatry is a four part process plus a one-time safety course:
This question bank is targeted to helping you pass the Cognitive Expertise portion (the Child Psychiatry MOC exam). The exam is computer-based and consists of multiple-choice questions (MCQ).
The Child Neurology MOC Exam is a computer-based exam consisting of 200 multiple-choice questions (MCQ) administered in four sections with 30-57 questions in each section.
The exam lasts approximately 4 hours including optional breaks between each section.
See the Instructions for the 2017 Child and Adolescent Maintenance of Certification Examination for the examination delivery structure.
Stand-alone questions are single best answer MCQ’s that are not associated with any other questions. These questions can be flagged for review or skipped. However, candidates cannot review questions in a section that has been completed.
Vignette questions are linked to a common case that may be presented in either a short video clip (30 seconds to 3 minutes), or in text. Vignette questions must be answered in order to advance to the next question. Therefore, candidates can not skip vignette questions or review vignette questions after they have been completely answered.
It is recommended candidates familiarize themselves with the examination functions by reviewing Samples Screens provided by the ABPN.
ABPN MOC examinations have pass rates of about 95%.
The BoardVitals question bank also targets the AOBNP OCC continuous certification exam. Additional resources may be available via the AACAP.
