How well does your residency program perform for you and your residents?
Most residency program directors in the United States and Canada use the PRITE and CHILD PRITE to assess the competence of their residents as well as the effectiveness of their educational programs.
The PRITE Editorial Board and Commission have agreed to the following schedule to implement the use of DSM 5 as a reference in the PRITE and CHILD PRITE.
* 2013 exams – DSM IV TR
* 2014 exams - only those categories that will not be changing from DSM IV TR to DSM 5
* 2015 exams – DSM 5
PRITE: $150 / CHILD PRITE: $125
Exams include answer keys and reference guides. Choose from exams from the past five years.
The Psychiatry Resident-In-Training Examination® (PRITE®)
One of The College's most valuable contributions to psychiatric education is the annual Psychiatry Resident-In-Training Examination (PRITE®). The College designed PRITE® as an educational resource for psychiatric residents and training programs. Each section of the exam focuses on a particular component of psychiatry, offering references to support and explain correct answers.
Nearly all psychiatry residents in the United States and many in Canada, take the exam three to four times throughout their residency training.
Residents receive a detailed computer analysis of their test performance in comparison with other residents at a similar level of training.
Training directors receive results for their individual residents as well as statistical summary data comparing their training program with other groups of participants. Residency programs use PRITE® as one factor, among many, for assessing the competency of residents. This information assists training directors in adjusting their programs to make them more effective.
