Comprehensive Psychiatry Review


Comprehensive Psychiatry Review

The accreditation process for psychiatry in the United States is considered one of the most difficult among all medical specialties. Although many board review books in psychiatry exist, this is the first fact-based resource that can be used for both written and oral review. Dr. William Weiqi Wang has developed a concise, outline-oriented format supplemented with case studies to prepare residents for the oral and written psychiatry boards. Each chapter can stand alone and is presented in “bite-size” clusters to facilitate easy absorption of the material. A section at the end of the book includes 150 board-review-style questions and answers drawn from previous tests. This book is a necessity for any student who plans to score aggressively on the ABPN, PRITE, and even the USMLE for medical students who want to pursue a career in psychiatry.


 Reviews:

"Each of the 50 chapters begins with a brief summary usually of one page or less. The majority of chapters focus on psychiatric diagnosis and treatment, though there are also chapters on topics such as biostatistics, functional neuroanatomy, and cultural and social psychiatry. Additionally, there are 10 chapters highlighting various neurologic conditions. There are numerous diagrams, figures, charts, and pictures, and 150 exam-type questions with answers at the end of the book....The advantage of this book is that it condenses a great deal of information into a digestible amount."
