Sport and Exercise Medicine OSCEs
An Essential Revision Guide
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after December 8, 2021
As the only text on the market for Sport and Exercise Medicine OSCEs, this is an invaluable guide for those studying sport and exercise medicine and sitting examinations. Whilst specifically targeted at the OSCE, this book will have much wider appeal throughout the clinical setting.
Sport and Exercise Medicine is a new and developing specialty and there has been a rapid increase in the number of Universities offering MSc degrees in Sport and Exercise Medicine and more candidates year on year sitting the FSEM diploma exam. It is a niche specialty, with very little content taught at an undergraduate level, therefore knowing the material that is examined is often challenging compared with other specialties. This book provides the content to fill that need. The book is divided into sections based on the main topics that arise in sport and exercise medicine OSCEs, with both core knowledge and practical tips to ensure a fluid and confident performance by the examinee in every station.
A wide range of readers will benefit from this book, including those about to sit a postgraduate examination in sport and exercise medicine, or those enrolled on a postgraduate certificate or Masters course in the specialty. It will also be useful to doctors and allied healthcare professionals such as physiotherapists, sports therapists, podiatrists and nurses as well as undergraduate students. Further, the young clinician who is just starting out and wants to build their confidence in musculoskeletal assessment and presenting to seniors will gain much from reading this book.
