Doody's Core Title 2013!

This third edition of the incomparable review bible for the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Board Examination has been completely updated to reflect current practice and the core knowledge tested on the exam. Known for its organization, consistency, and clarity, the book distills the essentials and provides focused reviews of all major topics.

Written in outline format for readability and easy access to information, content is modeled after the topic selection of the AAMPR Self-Directed Medical Knowledge Program used by residents nationwide. To aid in information retention, "Pearls" are designated with an open-book icon to highlight key concepts and stress clinical and board-eligible aspects of each topic. The text is divided into major subspecialty areas written by authors with clinical expertise in each subject area, and content is reviewed by senior specialists to ensure the utmost accuracy. More than 500 high-quality illustrations clarify and reinforce concepts. The book also provides updated epidemiologic and statistical data throughout and includes a section on biostatistics in physical medicine and rehabilitation.
