Surgery Morning Report: Beyond the Pearls is a case-based reference that covers the key material included on the USMLE Step 2 and Step 3, as well as the surgery clerkship. Focusing on the practical information you need to know, it teaches how to analyze a clinical vignette in the style of a morning report conference, sharpening your clinical decision-making skills and helping you formulate an evidence-based approach to realistic patient scenarios.
- Each case has been carefully chosen and covers scenarios and questions frequently encountered on the Surgery boards, shelf exams, and clinical practice, integrating both basic science and clinical pearls.
- 'Beyond the Pearls' tips and secrets (all evidence-based with references) provide deep coverage of core material.
- 'Morning Report'/'Grand Rounds' format begins with the chief complaints to the labs, relevant images, and includes a 'pearl' at the end of the case. Questions are placed throughout the case to mimic practical decision making both in the hospital and on the board exam.
- Written and edited by experienced teachers and clinicians; each case has been reviewed by board certified attending/practicing physicians.
