Learning assessment methods

The Psychiatry exam consists of a written test in attendance with 31 multiple-choice questions, each having 4 options with only one correct answer. Each correct answer is worth 1 point, while unanswered or incorrect responses earn 0 points with no penalties. Those who score at least 18 on the written test have the option to take an oral examination, with no guarantee that the written exam grade will be maintained.

The pharmacology exam (Module of Pharmacology - see specific section) will be a written test (21 multiple choice questions)

The successful completion of the Pharmacology exam is a prerequisite for taking the Psychiatry exam. The final grade is determined by a weighted average of the Pharmacology exam (2 credits) and the Psychiatry exam (4 credits).
