Overview

A comprehensive yet concise review of relevant topics and examination strategies needed to pass the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) Part II (Oral) exam, complete with up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines on diagnosis and management in clinical neurology. The book follows the ABPN format, providing clinical case vignettes designed to allow the examinee to localize the plausible disease process, to indicate which investigations may help in establishing a diagnosis, to deduce treatment plans, and to make a prognosis, including patient and family counseling. The emergency cases test the ability to think critically when faced with a neurological emergency, putting a premium on resuscitation, patient safety, and rapid high-yield investigations. The general neurology cases reflect the breadth of disorders experienced in hospital and outpatient settings. The author's suggested study regimen takes into account the difficulties of allotting time to prepare while in post-residency training or practice. Comprehensive and case-based, Neurology Oral Boards Review: A Concise and Systematic Approach to Clinical Practice provides a structured approach to clinical problem solving in neurology, as well as an effective and time-efficient method to master the factual material needed to successfully complete the Neurology Oral Boards.
