Psychiatry Clinical Skills Verification


Clinical Skills Verification Exams

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.

Read below to learn more about completing your CSVs at Massachusetts General Hospital.



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 two faculty members who use the ABPN CSV checklist to score your interviews.
  • One (1) night accommodation at either the Liberty Hotel or Wyndham Hotel Boston Beacon Hill (pending availability). Both are directly adjacent to the hospital.
  • A personal guide who accompanies you throughout your visit.
