The Addiction e-Practice Test (ADePT)

A Proven Self-Assessment Tool for Certification Exam Prep

The Addiction e-Practice Test (ADePT) is a proven knowledge self-assessment and subspecialty certification examination preparation tool developed without industry support or influence by an academic panel of addiction medicine experts from the American College of Academic Addiction Medicine.

ADePT has been optimized based on psychometric analysis performed by the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) and meets the high standards expected from an actual board exam. The formatting of ADePT is the closest available to the actual certification exam. The exception is that physicians have unlimited attempts until a passing score is achieved plus three additional retakes.

This evidence-based, referenced, cognitive assessment tool was developed initially as an in-training assessment tool for addiction medicine fellowships. It is aimed at identifying areas of strengths and weaknesses in addiction medicine knowledge and includes more than 300 questions.
