Doody's Core Title 2013!

"This book does an excellent job and is currently the only known review book for physiatrists. The author has done it again, producing an excellent, concise resource that provides clinicians with an optimal solution for studying for the written board examination." --Doodys Reviews

This third edition of the incomparable review bible for the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Board Examination has been completely updated to reflect current practice and the core knowledge tested on the exam. Known for its organization, consistency, and clarity, the book distills the essentials and provides focused reviews of all major topics. Coverage is expanded in the third edition to include dedicated sections on pain management, medical ethics, and ultrasound that reflect new board requirements.

Written in outline format for readability and easy access to information, content is modeled after the topic selection of the AAPMR Self-Directed Medical Knowledge Program used by residents nationwide. To aid in information retention, âèPearlsâì are designated with an open-book icon to highlight key concepts and stress clinical and board-eligible aspects of each topic. The text is divided into major subspecialty areas written by authors with clinical expertise in each subject area, and content is reviewed by senior specialists to ensure the utmost accuracy. More than 500 high-quality illustrations clarify and reinforce concepts. The book also provides updated epidemiologic and statistical data throughout and includes a section on biostatistics in physical medicine and rehabilitation. In addition to its proven value as a resource for exam preparation, the book is also a must-have for practicing physiatrists seeking recertification, and for PM&R instructors helping trainees to prepare for the exam.
