REAL-LIFE CLINICAL CASES for the Basic Sciences and USMLE Step 1
Clinical correlations are increasingly emphasized in the teaching of basic medical science. Students, therefore, need exposure to clinical cases to pass course exams and ace the USMLE Step 1. This book presents 51 real-life clinical cases illustrating essential concepts in physiology. Each case includes an easy to understand discussion correlated to key basic science concepts, definitions of key terms, physiology pearls, and USMLE-style review questions. This interactive learning system helps you to learn instead of memorize.
• 51 clinical cases correlated to high-yield physiology concepts
• Physiology Pearls highlight key points
• USMLE-style comprehension questions with each case
• Primer on how to approach the basic sciences
• Proven learning system improves exam scores

REAL LIFE CLINICAL CASES FOR THE COURSE EXAMS AND USMLE STEP 1
"This extremely useful book reinforces the relationship between basic science and clinical medicine for students. It will help them either review or learn basic physiology as it applies to medicine, which should strengthen their diagnostic and therapeutic skills. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service
You need exposure to clinical cases to pass course exams and ace the USMLE Step 1. Case Files: Physiology presents 50 real-life clinical cases illustrating essential concepts in microbiology. Each case includes and easy-to-understand discussion correlated to key basic science concepts, definitions of key terms, physiology pearls, and USMLE-style review questions. This interactive system helps you learn instead of memorize.
This book presents 50 clinical cases emphasizing the basic science aspects of physiology, traditionally one of the most difficult basic science subjects. Each case includes an extended discussion (including definitions and a pathophysiology discussion), key points, and 3-5 USMLE-style comprehension questions.
