Facing the American Board of Surgery Certifying Exam is not merely taking another exam. Most surgeons are not exposed to the techniques of oral examinations or to the best methods to prepare for them. It is seemingly a game in which you have to ascertain the rules, but in reality it is no game. The stakes are high. Reading from sizeable textbooks, poorly-organized review books, and one-dimensional autobiographic example scenarios undeniably makes studying for this exam more stressful than fruitful. Knowing what is important and what is not is crucial when studying for this particular exam. The authors have learned how the challenges can be overcome; as a result, this book was written to include everything that you will need to successfully pass this critical exam. This guide provides pertinent pearls of wisdom quoted from others who have successfully taken the exam and includes: • One hundred and forty-five subjects of content, • Twenty-six bulleted descriptions of the most commonly probed surgical procedures, and, • Sixty-nine of the most commonly asked subjects over the last ten years stressed with invaluable example scenarios that show how content and technique should be employed synergistically.

Genre: Medical

In this study, Dr. Ashraf A. Hilmy, with a surgeons objective, no-nonsense precision and an unabashed lack of political correctness, dissects the current state of health-care delivery in America. In practice since 1979, he is board certified in surgery, anesthesiology, critical-care medicine, and health-care administration. He received an MBA from the University of Texas, Pan Am with an emphasis on health-care administration. He has served as both chief of surgery and staff at several institutions and has practiced in every scale of facilitysolo, partnership, and group practice. Dr. Hilmy is uniquely qualified to render an informed opinion about health care in the United States. In his professional judgment, there is no question that the current system is faltering and in need of radical reform. No other country in the world spends so much on health care and has so little to show for it. Written with the layperson in mind, Health-Care Reform offers insightful, well-researched, supported arguments. Though it does not set out to offend anyone, people will be offendedas a portion of the drivers of escalating health-care costs are laid squarely on their shoulders. Health-Care Reform addresses how health care is delivered in America. By comparing our delivery system to those used around the world, Dr. Hilmy breaks down different cost drivers with anonymous case examples, and finally, offers suggestions for realistic reform.
