NMS Obstetrics and Gynecology, Sixth Edition provides a succinct outline-format review for medical students in the obstetrics and gynecology clerkship. It includes case studies, USMLE-style questions, and a comprehensive exam to prepare students for the shelf/end-of-rotation exam and USMLE Step 2.

This edition includes two new chapters on recurrent pregnancy loss and polycystic ovarian syndrome. Diagnostic testing information in each chapter appears in tables for rapid review before seeing a patient. The book has a new two-color design with more illustrations and tables and wider margins for notes.

A companion Website offers the fully searchable text, case studies, and a comprehensive examination.
