Just when you thought psychiatry had completely lost it, the Go for
the Gold Diagnostic Champions' Challenge arrives on the scene.
Faster than a speeding
More powerful than a round of electro-convulsive therapy!
Able to inject tall syringes in a single plunge!
It's SuperDoc to the rescue!
Yes, the lucky SuperDoc will emerge from
a five-week challenge in which he deftly slings diagnoses of serious
mental illness in 60 seconds or less, beating out his colleagues for
speed and accuracy.
I am not making this up. Real doctors compete for real gold bullion
and bragging rights to see who can sling those labels the fastest
and win the most points. Leaders are displayed on leader boards and
updates are made weekly. I'm not sure if there is a yellow jersey
involved. I'm quite sure there are no restrictions on performance
There just can't be....
Here is the text from Psychiatric Times:
...face-off against your peers -
test your skills in a battle for diagnostic supremacy and go for
the gold. Yes, real gold!
For the next five weeks, Psychiatric
Times presents the "Diagnostic
Each week will feature a set of multiple
choice diagnostic dilemmas focused on mental health to test your
acumen: we present the problem, you diagnosis it - but you'll only
have up to 60 seconds for each question.
Each time you diagnose correctly, you'll
win points based upon the level of difficulty. Did you make the
high-score leader board for that week's round? Congratulations!
Didn't make it? Try again! Build your skills and take the test as
many times as you want, but only your first score counts.
The preliminary rounds take place for the first four weeks. The top
10 scorers for each week (from both the MD and non-MD tracks) will
be invited to participate in the "Diagnostic Champions' Final
Challenge" - the fifth week's round - to go head-to-head.
The top scorer of the finalist round for
the MD and non-MD track will - you guessed it - win one ounce of
solid gold bullion!
disrespectful, sad and ludicrous
Hey SuperDocs, instead of spending your time mentally masturbating
for cash and prizes,
Why don't you figure out how to help people
Why don't you invest some energy into learning about mental health?
Do you realize that you have NO TRAINING in real mental health?
you understand the structure of subjective experience?
Do you know
Do you even know how to help someone set and achieve
No, you don't.
You'd rather sit back and pretend people are
suffering because of undefined "chemical imbalances" and fabricated
"disorders" that ONLY YOU have a remedy for - which happens to be a
drug that you can hand out by spending less than a minute with
Is this your idea of mental health? No, it is not. You know this
isn't mental health. Apparently, it is a game with one goal in mind
- cash. Is this why you gather together and compete for gold
If ANY of you have anything to say for yourselves, I invite you to
Mental Health Exposed and discuss it with me. Let's talk!
