Family Medicine

Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2007 - Medical - 403 pages

Designed for third- and fourth-year medical students in the family medicine rotation, this book contains about 500 clinical vignette-based review questions, answers, and explanations similar to those generally found on the USMLE Step 2. The completely updated Second Edition includes all new questions and explanations, plus four new chapters: dermatology in primary care, geriatrics in primary care, hematology in primary care, and drug interactions, caveats, and primary care.

This book will help students master large amounts of information in a short time and review specific topics quickly. It will also be useful to residents studying for the family medicine boards.
