Current Psychiatry Exams
Apply for as many psychiatry exams that you are interested and qualified. To see if you meet the minimum qualifications for entrance into an exam, check the exam title(s) listed below. Bulletins announcing an upcoming exam for a specific classification are typically released three to four weeks prior to the final filing date for the exam.
Note: Examinations for psychiatrist classes may utilize an evaluation of each candidate’s experience and education compared to a standard developed from the class specification. For this reason, it is especially important that each candidate take special care in accurately and completely filling out their application. List all experience relevant to the “Requirements for Admittance to the Examination” shown on the announcement. Supplementary information will be accepted, but read the “Requirements for Admittance to the Examination” carefully to see what kind of information will be useful to the staff doing the evaluation.
