Overview

This case-based question and problem book encourages the medical student to integrate, to problem solve and to think critically. Organized by body system, each chapter provides case studies, questions and problems followed by complete explanations and solutions including diagrams, graphs and charts. Contains most relevant medical physiology and pathophysiology information, and an integration of complex information across the organ systems. Helpful for traditional course material as well as a valuable tool for a clinical vignette review in preparation for the USMLE Step 1 exam.
