Overview

The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology: Looking Back and Moving Ahead honors the 75th anniversary of the ABPN by reviewing the Board's history and evolution, describing the subspecialties and the role that certification plays in their practice, explaining the current status of the ABPN's programs, and exploring future directions. A substantive contribution to our understanding of the historical and contemporary issues that confront the Board, the profession, and the community of practitioners, this book • Provides in-depth chapters on the neurological subspecialties, including child neurology, clinical neurophysiology, vascular neurology, neuromuscular medicine, and neurodevelopmental disabilities.• Explores the psychiatric subspecialties in detailed chapters on addiction psychiatry, child and adolescent psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, psychosomatic medicine, and forensic psychiatry.• Describes the evolution and ongoing management of the credentialing process, including exam development, administration, and scoring.• Addresses the critical importance of ethical standards and their integral role in certification, licensing, and practice.• Discusses the future of board certification and the importance of recertification and lifelong learning.

With chapters written primarily by current or former ABPN directors or senior staff members, The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology: Looking Back and Moving Ahead will be invaluable to candidates, training programs, and institutions preparing for certification; diplomates seeking to maintain certification; and subspecialists desiring to understand the role of certification in their subspecialty.
