This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. The extended-matching question (EMQ) is now a widely adopted format for the assessment of medical students. Each question addresses a theme that may be a symptom, sign, investigation, diagnosis or a management decision, and the stems are clinical vignettes relevant to clerkship and application of knowledge to clinical practice. With each question there is an option list from which the reader chooses the most likely or the correct answer. The Second Edition of this book has been expanded to include a total of 200 EMQs, giving readers a foretaste of what they will encounter in their examinations. The questions cover a wide range of clinical themes across all the major branches of the medical curriculum.

Key Features

  • Covers medicine and surgery, as well as obstetrics and gynaecology, paediatrics and psychiatry
  • The short explanations that follow each answer are a useful guide to further reading and study.
