Diagnosis Training Series 1: Theory, Definitions, and Mental Status Exam (MSE)

Join Dr. Neil Falk, Cascadia’s Associate Medical Officer, for the next round of Diagnosis Training September 15 – December 1, to learn more about the diagnostic criteria for major disorders in various topic areas, review how the disorders are similar and how they differ, review the differential diagnosis of the disorders, and how to discriminate between them to arrive at an accurate diagnosis. Each session will end with an interactive discussion of case examples, followed by an optional Q&A session.

Sessions will be held remotely. Links will be provided to those registered prior to each session.

The sessions are stand-alone. You do not need to attend the entire series. This training is open to all and not just clinicians (QMHP, LMP).
