Excerpts
Flap Copy
This definitive history of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) shows how the Board, by defining core competencies in psychiatry and neurology, established national guidelines and standards for certification during an era of unparalleled technical and therapeutic advances. Understanding how the various specialties and subspecialties evolved, and how the credentialing process was conceived, developed, and adapted to reflect changes in clinical practice, is invaluable to both the candidate approaching the certification exams and the diplomate seeking to maintain certification. In addition, the book's emphasis on the future as well as the past provides a framework for thinking about the contemporary issues that confront the individual clinician and the community as a whole. The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology: Looking Back and Moving Ahead provides persuasive testimony that those earning certification have achieved an exceptional standard of professionalism, expertise, commitment to lifelong learning, and adherence to ethical standards, as well as assurance that the ABPN will continue to provide this service to the profession-and the public-at the highest level.
Reviews
Review Quotes
"Astonishing in its ambition, scope, and honest self-reflection, the ABPN's 75th Anniversary volume tells the story of the birth and maturation of our field. Contemporary leaders in psychiatry and neurology describe the history and trajectory of the Board, whose hand, seen and unseen, has profoundly shaped modern American psychiatry and, indeed, the face of the modern psychiatrist. Ranging from witty descriptions of the "Giants of American Psychiatry" to the struggle to transcend guild interests to meet the public interest, this volume surprises the reader with the background we thought we knew but did not, and the clarity of the vision for the future we did not know but all should."- Richard F. Summers, M.D., President, American Association of Directors of Residency Training (AADPRT), Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Co-Director of Residency Training, Department of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA
