View: 6731

This revision guide contains Extended Matching Questions (EMQs) and Observed Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) that comprehensively cover the major topics in Psychiatry likely to be tested at medical school. It will also be an invaluable resource to those taking other exams such as the PLAB and postgraduate Psychiatry examinations. Part 1 comprises 58 EMQs, divided into 8 chapters, covering questions on mental state examinations, general adult psychiatry, developmental and organic disorders, treatments, and management issues. Most EMQs focus on a particular presentation or issue and are based on clinical vignettes that describe a clinical scenario. Each EMQ is organized as five stems with 10 possible choices and answers to each EMQ are given at the end of each chapter with additional notes clarifying specific options not covered in the questions. Part 2 covers OSCEs, which are based on common clinical scenarios and stations frequently encountered in exams. The 23 questions cover history-taking, communication, and practical stations. Ideal for medical students and junior doctors, this book is intended to complement rather than replace other psychiatry books, and will help students develop a better understanding of the clinical aspects of psychiatry.
