Sports Medicine: Study Guide and Review for Boards is a comprehensive review text surveying the breadth of nonsurgical sports medicine. Covering topics pertinent to (and found on) the Sports Medicine board examination, the book is intended as a primary study tool for candidates preparing for certification. All of the subject areas tested on the boards are represented, including basic science and general procedures; health promotion and preventive aspects; emergency assessment and care; and diagnosis, management, and treatment of the full range of sports-related injuries and conditions. The editors have used the exam content outline as a blueprint for organizing the book so the space allotted to each chapter reflects the corresponding emphasis of the topic on the exam. Sports Medicine also provides the concise, high-yield facts that residents, fellows, trainees, and clinicians in any discipline need to supplement their training in non-operative sports medicine.
