Students who are preparing for the USMLE and are thinking about a residency in medicine as well as current medicine residents will ALSO be way ahead of the game when it comes time to sit for their medicine boards (yes, there's actually one more exam after step 3 (!) and it's the all-important one that makes you "board-certified"). This book is an excellent companion to the Frontrunners Internal Medicine Board Review Syllabus, which remains the syllabus for the Frontrunners Board Review Courses that are held throughout the year. While designed with the boards in mind, these resources are nonetheless outstanding study aids for medical students, residents, and practicing internists who simply want the best no-nonsense and most realistic Q&A review of internal medicine in all of its subspecialties! . And for those who are simply looking to expand their fund of knowledge in medicine, this back is without compare, and is ideal for health care professionals at all levels. If you're a mnemonics fan (and who isn't?) and you're prepping for the boards, then you'll definitely want to check out TURBO MNEMONICS FOR THE BOARDS. See the "Quick Order Form" at the end of this book. With OVER 400 MEMORY AIDS to the most commonly asked material, it can only turbo-boost your performance on the boards! Even if you don't use the book for the anagrams and other memory aids, the content itself is outstanding prep for the boards when used in conjunction with these Q&A and Frontrunners Internal Medicine Board Review Syllabus, containing all the core material for the boards. Over the years, we've been blessed with hundreds of questions and answers material that have been voluntarily submitted by physicians who have gone on to pass their boards, in their effort to help those "soldiers left behind"! We have therefore pooled for you from our database all the questions amassed to date, with answers and explanations. This critical board review resource is chock-full of over 1,200 OF THE MOST REALISTIC INTERNAL MEDICINE BOARD REVIEW QUESTIONS YOU''''LL FIND ANYWHERE FROM ALL THE RECENT EXAMS, because, just as important as knowing your stuff is being psychologically prepared. This book has also been popular in helping physicians make "connections" or concept links, so that "if you see this in the question, look for this in the answer." Having said all this, we also realize that there are individuals who have, over the years, grown weary of tedious self-study and who''''d rather take advantage of a sit-down, "feed-me" style of board review, even if the Frontrunners? CD AUDIO SYLLABUS, SLIDE SHOWS and BOOK PACKAGES can just be ordered. For this reason in early August each year we continue to offer our more formal WEEKEND MARATHON REVIEW board review course which covers 18 hours of high-yield-only review for the boards over one Saturday-Sunday weekend. HMOs are requiring that their PCPs be board-certified, or, at the very least, board-eligible to come on-board and stay on-board In fact, the terms "board-certified" and "board-eligible" are increasingly becoming an integral part of HMO contracts and renewal criteria. Being board-certified, therefore, is no longer a luxury. To some physicians, it's more than just placating the HMOs or even maintaining one's practice. It's about personal challenge; it's about being able to call oneself a "board-certified internist"; but even more simply, it's about winning! We want you to win. However you plan to use this book, our greatest hope is that we help you achieve your goals and make your life, dare we say, a little easier?
