Now Virtual!


These critical assessments are an opportunity to receive formative feedback, strengthen interviewing skills, and demonstrate clinical competency. CSVs are an important step towards American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) certification.

Our CSV program provides live patient interviews and other materials to help you navigate your CSV exams and prepare for your ABPN psychiatry certification exam.

In addition, you get consultation time with clinical experts from the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Psychiatry. They answer questions and provide guidance on clinical challenges you face in your interviews.

When you reserve a spot in our CSV program, it includes:

  • Up to four (4) live patient interviews at Massachusetts General Hospital. You receive direct feedback from three faculty members who use the ABPN CSV checklist to score your interviews.
  • A personal guide who accompanies you throughout your visit.
