Think your diagnostic skills regarding mental health are top notch? How about if you are only given limited time and information to make a diagnosis? Would you be able to choose the most appropriate treatment? If you answered yes to any of these questions, now is your chance to prove your superiority!

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!
