    Essential clerkship/shelf exam book These case files are indispensible for discerning foundation concepts & testable material. Otherwise family medicine is pretty much everything and everyone. Helps if you have read internal medicine case files first or done a medicine rotaiton.

    Warmed up to it. I am a FNP student. I have found it hard to sit down and just study pathology in text books with my free time. When I first got this case study book I expected more of working through a specific case study with different questions as options or such. However the case study is brief, then it goes into differentials and most probable diagnosis and very general additional diagnostics or treatment. For example treatment would be an antibiotic, muscle relaxants but not specifics. It then goes into a summary of back pain in general: prevalence, causes. It then goes into a good explanation of each differential. Back strain, lesion, spondylosis, etc. Then red flags are given as signs and symptoms indicative of a need to be more aggressive with imaging etc.This book is very much like how I am being precepted. I am learning how to think or approach these general complaints. It definitely helps if you are actively seeing patients. The sections are short which is another reason I have come to really love this book. For example I can just work through one case study if tired in 30 minutes. It facilitates picking the book up frequently and is very readable. I plan on ordering more of these style books.
