ISBN: 9780199948949
Release Date: 2013-08
Genre: Medical

Mayo Clinic Internal Medicine Board Review, 10th edition, is designed to meet the needs of physicians-in-training and practicing clinicians by updating their knowledge of internal medicine and preparing them for the ABIM certification and maintenance-of-certification examinations in internal medicine. For the 10th edition, contributors were asked to map chapters according to ABIM goals. At least 50 percent of the material will be new, with the remainder changed and updated. The redesign is intended to cover all ABIM goals while streamlining the text to make it more user-friendly. Large chapters have been broken up into smaller content-oriented chapters to facilitate shorter, more focused study opportunities. This book is divided into subspecialty topics (eg, allergy, cardiology, dermatology, etc) and cross-content topics related to general internal medicine (eg, men's health, women's health, geriatrics, etc). Questions and answers have been pulled from the main text to a companion book of Q&As to facilitate study.

Pulmonary Pearls of Wisdom

Author:
Publisher: Boston Medical Publishing
ISBN: UOM:39015042794431
Release Date: 1998
Genre: Medical

This book is structured in a question and answer format. Such a format is most useful in certain situations. It is useful to enable one to assess strengths and weakness in a particular area before starting a rotation in pulmonary medicine or a board exam review. This permits the reader to concentrate on areas of interest or weakness. Most readers will probably use this book in a post-textbook review mode. One such method would involve reading a chapter in a textbook then proceeding to answer the questions posed in this book. Other readers will prefer to comprehensively study the contents of pulmonary medicine entirely and use this book afterwards. The purpose of the last two methods is to permit the reader to uncover areas of weakness and to become familiarised with the process of answering questions. Answering questions during a board exam is a cognitive task which requires different faculties than reading a textbook. The chapters are organised to include all aspects of pulmonary medicine. The questions within each chapter are randomly presented, to simulate board exams and the way questions arise in real life.
