Covers a range of topics and resources for both preparation for qualifying examinations, and also as a reference guide for otolaryngologists, pediatricians, trainees, students, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants
The goal of this book is to have users not just read, but more importantly, to remember key pieces of information. This book is interactive, has multiple visual aids, and uses a tiered system to help guide studying. The three-level system distinguishes material that is necessary for general otolaryngology examination purposes (for those seeking the basic fundamentals), from that required for higher level learning (for those taking subspecialty examinations), to that which is intermediate in importance. The content focuses on clinical management decisions and consequences, high yield material from an information retention standpoint. The text includes color photographs, diagrams, practice case scenarios, multiple-choice questions, and various means for self-assessment or studying with a partner.
This book is especially for MBBS students who have taken medicine as their career and also for students preparing for various entrance tests to postgraduate diploma, MD/MS degree courses or Diplomate National Board or other competitive examinations.
It also serves as a foundation course for postgraduate students who have joined the speciality to pursue MS examination before taking to larger treatises on the subject and a quick revision before exam.
