How much do you know about mental health disorder? Are you adept at choosing the most appropriate treatment? Then face-off against your peers and test your skills in a battle for diagnostic supremacy!

For the next five weeks, Psychiatric Times presents the "Diagnostic Champions' Challenge." Each week will feature a set of multiple choice clinical dilemmas to test your diagnostic and therapeutic acumen. Every time you choose 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 be recognized as the champion!

  • Round 1 (Closed)

    To get you warmed up, here's a smattering of questions to test your clinical acumen. Ready?

  • Round 2 (Closed)

    In this round . . . challenging questions about DSM-V updates, PTSD, atypicals, and more. Get started!

  • Round 3 (Closed)

    Which FDA-approved treatment for mania is not approved for long term therapy/recurrence prevention? What's the leading cause of death in patients with severe mental illness? The questions get harder and more varied in this round. Start the clock!
