Detailed Study Guide
Outstanding Pass Rate
Laser-Focused Lectures: These Beat The Boards! Geriatric Psychiatry board review courses are comprised of hundreds of short, easily-digestible lecture modules, each of which reflects exam topics mapped to the ABPN® Geriatric Psychiatry Certification and Geriatric Psychiatry 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.
Geriatric Psychiatry 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 hundreds of board-style multiple-choice questions (MCQs) included with your course. Questions carefully follow the Geriatric Psychiatry board exams content outline, so each question advances your mastery of Geriatric Psychiatry exam content.
Realistic Test Environment: Your patients test you every day – but not in the same way the ABPN® Geriatric 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 Geriatric Psychiatry MCQs include detailed, referenced explanations. That way you’re not just testing your Geriatric Psychiatry knowledge – you’re learning the “how” and “why” behind every board-style question.
ANYTIME, ANYWHERE ACCESS

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 Geriatric Psychiatry prep course features 31.75 hours of laser-focused lectures and hundreds of Q Bank questions. 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,

Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
“I found Dr. Krasuski’s presentations to be well-researched, thorough, pertinent and structured in a way that aided in remembering important details. I passed the geriatric psychiatry board exam with flying colors, thanks to the excellent team at the American Physician Institute.”
M. Sethi, MD, Millburn, NJ
“I am still awaiting result but I am very confident that I should pass it. The Geriatric board course helped me lot. This course is not only very comprehensive , it also orients us how to test our knowledge after acquiring it. There are many topics which are tested in exam but they may not be in our radar when simply studying a text book. Most candidates who did not take course would only know during test that a significant part is comprised of Neurology questions . Overall it is very good course to pass the exam and acquire knowledge.”
Javed Ghani, MD, Saint James, NY
“Thank you, Dr. Krasuski for putting this education program together and helping me prepare for this difficult exam. I’m writing this knowing already that I’ve passed the boards. Thank you for your help.”
Lidia Kelpacz, MD, Mt. Kisco, NY

Sankar Kodidhi, MD, Lee’s Summit, MO
“Excellent; well-organized home study course which provided me with very timely and concise review of relevant topics. I will definitely recommend this course to others without any hesitation.”
Kuldip Rai Jassal, MD, Parksville, BC
“I wanted to thank you for the excellent review course that was so helpful in my studying for the geriatric psychiatry recertification examination. The test was a very difficult one, and the video lectures and accompanying notebooks were extraordinarily beneficial. The very best lectures were the ones involving dementia/neurocognitive disorder, where you tied together anatomy, functional circuitry, symptoms, syndromes, and diagnoses. It makes a lot more sense to me now than it ever has before. I’m glad that I have the notebooks to refer to in the future. The test was a very difficult one, and let me reiterate it was very difficult. Your help was invaluable. My score was 87 and passing was 71, and I’m relieved that the damnable thing is now behind me. Thank you,”
Jeffrey Danziger, MD, Maitland, FL
“The courses provided a comprehensive review of psychiatry and geriatric psychiatry. I passed the combined MOC exam on the first try. And just as importantly I appreciated the review of the latest material for my practice. I would definitely recommend the course to others.”
Colleen Connor, MD, Norristown, PA
