Short and OSCE Cases in Internal Medicine
Clinical Exams for PACES, MRCPI, Arab Board and Similar Exams
The second edition of this book is a practical revision guide for postgraduate students preparing for clinical examinations in internal medicine. Authored by an experienced postgraduate examiner, the book presents a series of short and OSCE cases presented in a uniform format, offering guidance on examination techniques, common mistakes made by candidates, and typical presentation of findings. Divided into seven sections, the book begins with advice on how to prepare for and pass clinical examinations. The remaining chapters cover cases relevant to different systems of the body – cardiovascular; respiratory; abdominal; neurological; endocrine, rheumatologic, connective tissue and skin; and eye and fundus. Each case provides a summary of diagnosis, differential diagnosis, management, and further information often required in examinations. The questions and model answers are similar to those most frequently encountered in examinations. The comprehensive text is enhanced by illustrations and figures to assist learning and will be useful not only to candidates preparing for postgraduate clinical examinations, but also to undergraduate students.
