Psychiatrists and residents are faced with the important -- but what may feel overwhelming -- task of refreshing their knowledge of the whole of psychiatric practice, typically while remaining engaged in full-time clinical activity. Psychiatrists will find the logical structure, substantive questions, and thorough explanations provided by the Study Guide for the Psychiatry Board Examination to be as reassuring as they are educational. Although readers are advised to consult a range of resources in preparation for the examination, this guide is indispensable. It is the first and only guide to reflect the revisions contained in DSM-5®, and it will ably assume a primary role in the study and review process. The guide is designed for maximum usefulness, with specific features and attributes to support knowledge recall and successful examination performance. The authors are from a cross-section of accomplished students, fellows, and junior and senior faculty, all of whom have faced or will face the board examination and who understand its importance to the profession. Topics were determined by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Certification Examination in Psychiatry 2015 Content Blueprint. The approximately 400 questions were formulated from information extracted from widely available American Psychiatric Publishing textbooks and accurately reflect the accepted psychiatric knowledge base. Each multiple choice question is followed by an explanation of why the correct answer is correct and the others are incorrect, and every question and explanation is referenced, directing the reader to the primary material for more in-depth learning and study. The volume was designed as a study guide for both the initial psychiatry board examination and the recertification examination. The process of working through the study guide will allow the reader to identify areas of strength and weakness, initiate further study, and test and retest knowledge, ultimately preparing for the examination's rigors. Only the Study Guide for the Psychiatry Board Examination offers support for the new, DSM-5® -- compatible examination, and that alone renders it essential.

The Clinical Study Guide for the Oral Boards in Psychiatry has been a trusted and indispensable resource for a decade and this new, 4th edition continues the tradition of currency, relevancy, and rigor. To pass the oral boards in psychiatry, a candidate must possess clinical knowledge that is both broad and deep, something that is difficult to attain for a clinician who is exposed, in daily practice, to a limited number of patients with a limited range of disorders. However, the oral boards are a test of clinical, not theoretical, knowledge, and so the candidate seeking to prepare thoroughly is faced with the critical challenge of mastering the patient interview, contextualizing the findings, and providing a differential diagnosis for disorders which he or she may not have encountered professionally. This book is designed to provide practical clinical information regarding the assessment and treatment of the types of patients most likely to present for the oral boards. Its approach is both encyclopedic and succinct, with an insider's view of what the candidate can expect. Organization is by class of disorder and each section addresses, at a minimum, the DSM-IV-TR diagnostic criteria, clinical issues, etiology, prognosis, differential diagnosis and treatment -- all the pertinent clinical information candidates should know so they will be prepared when asked by the examiners. The author stresses the necessity for thorough preparation and care in the formulation of responses, reflecting the knowledge that if a candidate mentions a particular medication, for example, he or she should expect to be questioned about its indications, dosing information, therapeutic benefits, and potential side effects. Less tangible factors are also discussed, such as demonstrating empathy for the patient, effective interview technique, and the ability to establish rapport. An abundance of tables and figures make complex information easy to understand, and the author has supplied algorithms for treatment protocols to help candidates whose experience with a particular patient group is limited. The oral examination is a difficult and intimidating event that looms large in the clinician's professional development. However, the Clinical Study Guide for the Oral Boards in Psychiatry both simplifies and demystifies the process by compiling and organizing all the material the candidate requires to prepare for the exam. Any candidate willing to invest the time and effort to study this comprehensive guide will surely achieve success.

Don't let the title of this book fool you. This medical study guide is packed with information. Random Musings earned its title to reflect the random nature of the occurrence of illness and the random nature of questions that medical students, resident doctors and specialist doctors must answer during the course of their training, re-certification examinations, and practice. Because the most popular formats for assessments are multiple choice and short answer questions, candidates must learn to think on their feet literally and precisely. This means the candidate must have facts at their fingertips. Some facts are popular and accessible, while others occur in the blind spot of knowledge. Random Musings aims to highlight the facts that are not "in your face" but that are important. Filled with definitions and descriptions of everything from dependency to blood alcohol levels, behavior therapy, and delirium, author Daniel Okoro has compiled a thorough review of terms, diagnoses, definitions, and ideas that are important in the field of medicine and psychiatry.
