Board Review in Preventive Medicine and Public Health, Second Edition provides an ideal resource for physicians preparing to take the board exams in both preventive medicine and occupational medicine or for those preparing to take the examination to become certified in Public Health. In this new edition, topics have been added to fill any potential gaps in important key concepts. Topics include clinical preventive medicine, health administration, epidemiology, biostatistics, occupational medicine, correctional medicine, aerospace medicine, and much more. This second edition uses the board exam outline supplied by the American Board of Preventive Medicine to help test-takers understand exam topics and components. The primary audience for the book is physicians preparing to take board exams in preventive medicine or occupational medicine.
