250 Cases in Clinical Medicine
A collection of short cases arranged by clinical area, emphasising the key diagnostic features of clinical conditions as commonly presented in the short case part of the Final MB and MRCP examinations. Also included are likely instructions or commands expected from the examiner for each condition, and the key points which the candidate must tell the examiner. In June 2001 the MRCP short cases exam is being replaced with a new OSCE-style exam called PACES (Practice Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills) and this book will take full account of this change.
