From the Publisher
"As the scope of practice in family medicine is broad, this book provides a wide range of cases that a family medicine physician must understand for their daily encounters with patients… This is a worthwhile study aid for those preparing for the family medicine certification examination."

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This is the eighth edition of a book that provides problem-oriented preparation for the family medicine board certification process. The previous edition was published in 2013.
Purpose: As the scope of practice in family medicine is broad, this book provides a wide range of cases that a family medicine physician must understand for their daily encounters with patients.
Audience: Although primarily focused on family medicine residents, the book is also an excellent review for recertification examinations and for a general updating of one's knowledge.
Features: The book is divided traditionally by organ system and further divided into common diagnoses routinely encountered in family medicine. Each chapter contains a number of clinical case problems followed by a number of multiple choice questions and explanations of the correct answers. There is a general clinical case management problem with an idealized diagnostic workup. There are a great number of clinical algorithms and, finally, a summary section highlighting the teaching points of the chapter. At the end of the chapter there are a number of selected readings of pertinent literature citations.
Assessment: This is a worthwhile study aid for those preparing for the family medicine certification examination.
