View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This series will help medical students taking required clerkships achieve high grades on clinical performance on the wards and on written exams. There is currently no book out there to take them through the experience step-by-step. Each year medical students take required clerkships, and there is no book out there to take them through the experience step by step. This series will follow the successful First Aid format to present information relevant to particular clerkships, and each book will be divided into three sections to follow the "First Aid for the Clinical Clerkship" series format. Section 1: "How to Succeed in the Clerkship and Impress on the Wards," will give medical students tips on how to survive the clerkship and do well on the shelf exam? Section 2: "High-Yield Topics," will cover each core topic students need to know. Section 3: The third and final section, "Classified," offers overviews of appropriate web sites accessible to medical students and notes opportunities for students interested in pursuing careers in the particular topic of that book (such as scholarships). Last Page: Includes two tear-out pocket cards, which highlight important to remember concepts in a pocket-ready format.

"The book is divided into chapters, each of which reviews major psychiatric topics that students are expected to master during their clerkship. Topics are listed under bold headings, with essential information below. Outside margins contain mnemonics, diagrams, exam tips, and other memory aids." "A thorough index is found at the end. A Folstein Mini Mental State Exam is provided on a removable card, another nice feature." "As Director of Medical Student Education for my department, I was interested in the appropriateness of this study guide. I showed it to a superior student who had recently completed her core psychiatry rotation, and her overall opinion was positive, as was mine. We both agreed that charts and tables would be an improvement. This study guide would greatly benefit students in their psychiatry rotation, and I plan on recommending it to my students." "4 Stars!"
