Real-Life Cases for the Family Medicine Clerkship and the Shelf-Exam
“The 55 simulated clinical cases in this book illustrate the more common presentations encountered in family medicine in an easy to understand format that serves well as an introduction to clinical medicine….This book is widely used by medical students in our facility, who view it as easy to understand and inclusive of most of the clinical material that they encounter daily in their rotation….this is an easy to use casebook that students can actually carry to the clinic and use directly. The second edition incorporates more relevant clinical material and questions that prepare the students better for their national boards. 3 Stars.”–Doody’s Review Service
