Main description

A resident-to-resident "insider's guide" for success on the Emergency Medicine written board and in-service exams

First Aid for the Emergency Medicine Boards presents time-strapped emergency medicine residents (taking annual in-training exams or the end of residency board certification exam) and practitioners (renewing their certification) with a concise resource presenting quick, frequently tested, high-yield facts based on the most recently administered in-service and board exams. It is a complete review of emergency medicine topics tested on the written board exam. Approximately 125 clinical images and algorithms enhance the text. Margin notes reinforce key points. A chapter on preparing for the emergency medicine board exam provides helpful advice on scheduling study time, how to register for the exam, and what to expect on exam day.
