What to Expect on this Website

This online resource is the only independent active online resource for the education of psychiatry residents and other psychiatric-care providers. It will provide you with an outline of the highest yield topics for the PRITE® exam as well as the Psychiatry Boards.

This website is in no way a comprehensive review of all of psychiatry, but it does cover the highest yield topics for the examinations that one would take in psychiatry residency and beyond.


NowYouKnow Psych™ is designed to provide information and guidance in regard to the psychiatric diseases it covers. It is a study guide and thus not meant to be a clinical resource. The content of this website is largely original content gathered through the input of numerous experts, as well as some other secondary sources which are cited throughout. We encourage you to review them at your leisure for clarification about any topics discussed.

While we take every step in our editorial process to ensure no incorrect information is included on this site, we assume no responsibility for errors, omissions or typographical mistakes. Additionally, those who were involved in the creation of this site are not liable for any damages resulting from the use of the information provided by this site.

While we try to keep our content up to date, there are always advancements in psychiatry which may, in turn, change our curriculum, and thus we do not assume the responsibility of such points.
