Real life cases for the psychiatry clerkship and shelf-exam 4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "During medical school, I used similar case review books for various clerkships, including psychiatry. This one stands out because the cases are representative of psychiatry, the explanations are complete yet concise, and the text uses bolded words, tables, and definitions of key terms to help readers understand the essential concepts rather than simply memorizing more data that is likely to be forgotten. The questions are very representative of the type of questions on the shelf-exams and USMLE Step 2, with appropriate descriptions of the correct answers. The first two sections are ideal for students just beginning their clerkship, as they set the groundwork for the basis of psychiatry."--Doody's Review Service You need exposure to high-yield cases to excel on the psychiatry clerkship and the shelf-exam.
