This book is ideal for med students or residents. It has pretty much every detail you would need for a clinical rotation in psychiatry. It is broken down into chapters that are easy to follow, with details for any general or specialty rotation you would do. It appears to include all the EBM for each major disorder- meds AND therapy- most anything the patients asked about was somewhere in the book. It also has a lot of background info/ buzzwords/vocab/ shelf exam type information, so you may not need additional references for exams.
