Genre: Medical

Psychiatrists and residents are faced with the important -- but what may feel overwhelming -- task of refreshing their knowledge of the whole of psychiatric practice, typically while remaining engaged in full-time clinical activity. Psychiatrists will find the logical structure, substantive questions, and thorough explanations provided by the Study Guide for the Psychiatry Board Examination to be as reassuring as they are educational. Although readers are advised to consult a range of resources in preparation for the examination, this guide is indispensable. It is the first and only guide to reflect the revisions contained in DSM-5®, and it will ably assume a primary role in the study and review process. The guide is designed for maximum usefulness, with specific features and attributes to support knowledge recall and successful examination performance. The authors are from a cross-section of accomplished students, fellows, and junior and senior faculty, all of whom have faced or will face the board examination and who understand its importance to the profession. Topics were determined by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Certification Examination in Psychiatry 2015 Content Blueprint. The approximately 400 questions were formulated from information extracted from widely available American Psychiatric Publishing textbooks and accurately reflect the accepted psychiatric knowledge base. Each multiple choice question is followed by an explanation of why the correct answer is correct and the others are incorrect, and every question and explanation is referenced, directing the reader to the primary material for more in-depth learning and study. The volume was designed as a study guide for both the initial psychiatry board examination and the recertification examination. The process of working through the study guide will allow the reader to identify areas of strength and weakness, initiate further study, and test and retest knowledge, ultimately preparing for the examination's rigors. Only the Study Guide for the Psychiatry Board Examination offers support for the new, DSM-5® -- compatible examination, and that alone renders it essential.

Publisher: American Psychiatric Pub

Release Date: 2016-03-21
Genre: Medical

Designed and written for the student new to psychiatry, the Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry, Sixth Edition provides a concise summary of diagnosis and classification, interviewing and assessment, the neurobiological basis of psychiatry, the various psychiatric disorders, treatment modalities, psychotropic medications, and much more -- all in a DSM-5®-compatible format. The Study Guide to this bestselling text is similarly structured and written to enhance comprehension and consolidation of the knowledge acquired from the text. The format replicates what might be encountered in specialty-certifying exams, with each question followed by multiple-choice responses, including plausible "distractors." In the answer guide, the question is repeated and the answer is then provided, along with the reasoning for the correct response and why the other answers are incorrect. Each question is linked to a page in the textbook, making it easy for the reader to further review the topic. As an ancillary resource, the book has much to recommend it: * Although uniquely useful for medical students, beginning psychiatry residents, and those studying for board exams, the Study Guide can be used equally well in a variety of training programs, including advanced practice nursing, physician assistant programs, social work, and psychology.* The authors of the text are accomplished writers as well as clinicians, and the book is valued for its engaging writing style and consistent structure. The Study Guide mirrors these strengths, and the resulting volume is accessible, easy to use, interesting, and highly readable.* The guide builds on the text's many case vignettes, useful clinical "pearls," and a multitude of self-assessment questions, covering everything a student new to psychiatry needs to know. The Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry is designed to provide medical students, beginning residents, and others with a solid foundation and orientation to the field, and the Study Guide is the perfect companion volume to the classic text, reinforcing critical concepts and testing retention of indispensable information.

Random Musings in Psychiatry

Author: Daniel Chinedu Okoro
Publisher:
ISBN: 0595431372
Release Date: 2008-11
Genre: Medical

Don't let the title of this book fool you. This medical study guide is packed with information. Random Musings earned its title to reflect the random nature of the occurrence of illness and the random nature of questions that medical students, resident doctors and specialist doctors must answer during the course of their training, re-certification examinations, and practice. Because the most popular formats for assessments are multiple choice and short answer questions, candidates must learn to think on their feet literally and precisely. This means the candidate must have facts at their fingertips. Some facts are popular and accessible, while others occur in the blind spot of knowledge. Random Musings aims to highlight the facts that are not "in your face" but that are important. Filled with definitions and descriptions of everything from dependency to blood alcohol levels, behavior therapy, and delirium, author Daniel Okoro has compiled a thorough review of terms, diagnoses, definitions, and ideas that are important in the field of medicine and psychiatry.
