In this Book

summary
This easy-to-read, unique format text combines introductory psychiatry content with board-style review questions written for first and second year medical students.  The book is intended to be used as the required text for pre-clinical psychiatric education.  The user-friendly split page format includes clinical vignettes, "fun facts," and relevant art work.  Each chapter contains board review questions that prepare the medical student for USMLE Step 1 and COMLEX 1. By using a clinical approach consistent with the needs of today's medical students, the authors hope to prepare first and second year medical students for their exams and clinical rotations.
