Main description


You need exposure to high-yield cases to excel in the surgery clerkship and on the shelf exam. Case Files: Surgery presents 56 real-life cases that illustrate essential concepts in surgery. Each case includes a complete discussion, clinical pearls, references, definitions of key terms, and USMLE-style review questions. With this system, you'll learn in the context of real patients, rather then merely memorize facts.

  • 56 high-yield cases, each with USMLE-style questions, help you master core competencies to excel on the clerkship and ace the shelf exam
  • Clinical pearls highlight key concepts
  • Primer teaches you how to approach clinical problems
  • Proven learning system maximizes your shelf exam scores

" extremely useful resource. It is a quick read and it serves to cover all the important topics pertaining to surgery at a level appropriate for a third-year medical student or surgical intern. It serves as a good introduction to the basic surgical diseases and their management."
-- Jeffrey Feiner, Medical Student, Buffalo Medical School (reviewing previous edition)
