Exam Success Requires Study. Isolation is Not Required.
A Study Community Welcomes You
Almost all board preparation now occurs online. With that convenience, though, comes less interaction with faculty and fellow Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry exam-takers.
When you register with Beat The Boards!, you join a community of colleagues preparing for the same exam. On the community forum, you can ask questions, give advice, and offer to start or join a study group.
There is strength in numbers – help and be helped, stay motivated, and get connected. All with Beat The Boards! Get started today.
Details of Name Change from Psychosomatic Medicine to Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry
The ABPN® has announced that starting January 1, 2018 the Psychosomatic Medicine subspecialty certification will change to Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry, to better reflect “the discipline’s key focus of treating behavioral conditions in patients with medical and surgical problems.” This change “will not affect previous Psychosomatic Medicine certificate holders, whose certification status will remain the same.” As a consequence, the Beat The Boards! board review course will also change its name to reflect the new board name. There is no change to the exam blueprint.
Detailed Study Guide
Outstanding Pass Rate
Laser-Focused Lectures: These Beat The Boards! courses are comprised of hundreds of short, easily-digestible lecture modules, each of which reflects exam topics mapped to the ABPN® Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry (previously known as Psychosomatic Medicine) Certification and MOC board exam blueprints. The modules are organized into lectures covering all related exam “keywords”; thus, you effectively review every required exam topic and nothing else, acquiring increased mastery of the material in less time.
Board-Experienced Faculty: Lectures are presented by faculty experienced in teaching for board exam preparation. The two levels of medical editing ensure every lecture is up-to-date, medically accurate and 100% board-relevant. The certification and MOC courses share the same tried and true faculty.
Consultation-Liaison Study Guide: This course companion makes it easy to follow along with lectures, take notes, and study offline. The PDF includes the complete course syllabus, with all referenced slides, photos, illustrations, and infographics. (Printed version also available at checkout.)
Outstanding Pass Rate: Beat the Boards! Participant Pass Rate: 100%; Overall ABPN® Pass Rate: 96% (MOC Exam).
BOARD-STYLE PRACTICE QUESTIONS
Comprehensive Q Bank
Realistic Test Environment
The “QBL” Method
Optimized for Learning
Comprehensive Q Bank: You can test your exam preparedness by answering 800+ board-style multiple-choice questions (MCQs) included with your course. Questions carefully follow the Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry board exams content outline, so each question advances your mastery of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry exam content.
Realistic Test Environment: Your patients test you every day – but not in the same way the ABPN® Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry boards test you. You learn taking practice tests in the board exam format. It’s as close as you can get to the real exam!
The “QBL” Method: To ensure pinpoint exam relevancy, lectures use a method called “Question-Based Learning.” Lectures are constructed from a series of board-style multiple-choice questions (MCQs), each coupled to a mini-lecture on that question’s topic.
Optimized for Learning: The Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry MCQs include detailed, referenced explanations. That way you’re not just testing your Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry knowledge – you’re learning the “how” and “why” behind every board-style question.

Register and study within minutes – No hassles, wasted energy, or delays!
“I’m in downtown Chicago to highlight the anytime/anywhere/offline flexibility of The Beat The Boards! course. This Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry prep course features 50.5 hours of laser-focused lectures and a 800+ question Q Bank. But here’s the rub – all that great content will do you no good if you don’t get through it in time for the exam. Here are a few examples of the ease of preparing with Beat The Boards!: 1) listen to audio lectures on the app as you commute to and from work, 2) answer a few MCQs on your lunch break, 3) watch video lectures as you work-out on the stair climber or exercise bike, and 4) when you know you’ll be on call without Wi-Fi or cellular signal, download lectures to your phone ahead of time. Works great on flights as well!
Here at American Physician Institute we’re dedicated to your board success. That’s why we offer you a better-than-money-back pass guarantee. We don’t succeed unless you succeed.”
Yours in board exam success,
Jack Krasuski, MD, Executive Director

Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
“Beat the Boards helped me pass both exams with ease; I would not consider taking the boards without Dr. Jack Krasuski’s courses and lectures, which more than prepare for the exam, they help me become a better clinician. I really like the way the course is played out, with videos, printed material and review questions. It is quite manageable and very well explained and an appropriate level. Thank you so much and keep up the good work!”
Warren DePonti, DO, Lexington, KY
