Revised second edition of the singular review book devoted to helping candidates prepare for and succeed on the ABPMR Part II certification examination. This interactive workbook has been updated and expanded to reflect changes to the oral exam format and introduce topics of increasing importance. With new chapters on complex medical rehabilitation, cancer rehabilitation, pain medicine, spinal disorders, and sports medicine and a total of 86 cases across all practice areas on the board outline, this is the study tool that positions you to pass Part II the first time out.
The book uses a question and response format to actively engage readers for individual or group study. Chapter vignettes set up common physiatric problems and are structured to walk readers through the types of questions encountered in daily practice. This unique conversational method simulates a discussion between examiner and examinee, presenting a focused exchange that unfolds organically and leads respondents to the most appropriate answers. Case questions are organized by the five domains measured on the oral boards: data acquisition, problem solving, patient management, systems-based practice, and interpersonal and communication skills.
Designed to build a systematic approach to clinical questions applicable to any case so you can think on your feet, understand the goal of the prompts, and respond effectively both on the boards and at the patient's bedside.
