Behavioral Science in Medicine / Edition 1

Written by Dr. Barbara Fadem, the same author that brought you the popular review books High Yield Behavioral Science and BRS Behavioral Science, Behavioral Science in Medicine is a comprehensive yet manageable text that introduces first and second year medical students to the science of human behavior. Organized to mirror the behavioral science/psychiatry course taught in the first two years of medical school, this text effectively teaches the major concepts of this complex subject and prepares students for Steps 1 & 2 of the USMLE. Students will also appreciate the integrated clinical case studies found in each chapter and the use of tables to reinforce important information.
