Overview:


  • Book Name : Rapid Review Physiology

 

  • Author: Edward F. Goljan

 

  • Pages : 283

 

  • Book Description:

Rapid Review Physiology, Second Edition, is intended for medical students preparing for Step 1 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination. I believe this new edition represents a significant improvement from the first edition for a variety of reasons. The first edition was written by me while I was a resident in internal medicine, with tremendous input from contributing authors. Although their input was extremely helpful, because of their varying styles I thought that the first edition did not read as smoothly as I would have liked. In contrast, this edition was authored solely by me, now a relatively seasoned clinician and physiologist, and therefore “speaks” with a single voice.

As with the first edition, my strategy was to teach the core physiological principles in an integrated fashion with respect to the basic sciences as well as in a clinical context wherever possible. The second edition also includes hundreds of margin notes containing what I think is high-yield information for the boards. Some students may peruse a particular chapter simply by reviewing the margin notes to see if they have a good grasp of the underlying material.

• Text: Clear and concise and in an outline format with an emphasis on imparting a conceptual understanding rather than focusing on “low-yield” minutiae.
• Clinical notes: Dispersed throughout the book. Stress the clinical significance of the underlying physiology, which facilitates comprehension and makes the material more enjoyable.
• Basic science notes: Dispersed throughout the book. Act as a “bridge” between physiology and closely related concepts in anatomy, pathology, and pharmacology, which is essential for a deeper understanding of the underlying physiology and is invaluable preparation for the boards.
• Tables and illustrations: Facilitate understanding and act as quick reference sources.
• Access to questions via Internet (with password provided): Allows students to practice questions online in a realistic USMLE format. Questions can be accessed in a subject-specific manner to review a given “system,” or in a random manner to review all of physiology.
