Becoming a Clinician: A Primer for Medical Students

by Shirley M. Neitch, Maurice Mufson


3 New & Used Starting at $3.21


Provides a novel approach to understanding clinical experiences for first and second year medical students. It covers three broad strategies: it addresses the philosophical aspects of the experience of being a physician; it provides practical information for students beginning their first clinical encounters with "authentic" patients; and it stresses education in the ambulatory care setting by describing clinical scenarios commonly confronted by primary care physicians in their offices. Common medical conditions are presented in a practical way which integrates pathophysiology and clinical conditions at a level appropriate to the second year student. Each chapter ends with a case study and "board" adapted questions.
