Overview

Designed as a quick read for both students on an orthopedics rotation and others who want to know more about the specialty, Blueprints Orthopedics covers the essentials of orthopedics that every student will need to know.

Pocket-sized and practical, this book covers the most common conditions students are likely to encounter. The focus is on the essential content students need to know during a rotation, allowing for a fast, easy read. Blueprints Orthopedics is organized anatomically for quick, easy-to-use reference. Each chapter begins with a concise overview of high-yield surgical and functional anatomy, followed by review of the physical examination, diagnostic evaluation, and treatment of common orthopedic diseases and disorders.

Fifty multiple-choice review questions are included to help students test their understanding of the subject. The book also features valuable appendices on career and residency opportunities, a handy reference list of commonly prescribed medications, a glossary of key words, terms, and tests, and suggested additional readings of current and classic evidence-based references.

Blueprints Orthopedics is perfect for medical students. Physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and related health professionals will also find the book valuable.

    Excellent!!

    I highly recommend this book for any medical student doing a rotation in ortho. Ortho residents who want a quick review they can carry in their pocket will also find this book very useful. Best quick review book I've found for ortho.
