Authored by an experienced clinician, lecturer and author Dr. Shahzad G. Raja, this book understands which questions candidates find most challenging and offers a lifeline to those in particular who must revisit the subject for their specialty exams in Cardiothoracic Surgery.
It responds directly to the increasing use of SBAs as an examination style in postgraduate examinations. Questions integrate relevant basic science and pathology with clinical Cardiothoracic Surgery. Realistic, case-based questions cover important pathologies. Multi-dimensional questions encourage problem solving, helping candidates connect together multiple pieces of information as clinicians do with real patients. The book provides detailed explanations for each correct answer. Challenging questions enhance preparation for harder exam questions. This book should be part of the armoury of every specialty exam candidate in Cardiothoracic Surgery as well as a resource for residents in Cardiothoracic Surgery. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
