This book is designed in the tradition of the First Aid series of books. It is formatted in the same way as the other books in the series. You will find that, apart from preparing you for success on the clerkship exam, this resource will also help guide you in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of common surgical conditions.
The content of the book is based on the objectives for medical students as determined by the Association for Surgical Education (ASE). Each chapter contains the major topics central to the practice of general surgery and has been specifically designed for the medical student. The book is divided into general surgery, which contains topics that comprise the core of the surgery rotation, and subspecialty surgery, which may be of interest but is generally considered less high yield for the clerkship. Knowledge of a subspecialty topic may be useful if observing a related surgery or if requesting a letter from a surgeon in that field.
The content of the text is organized in the format similar to other texts in the First Aid series. Topics are listed with bold headings, and the “body” of the topic provides essential information. The outside margins contain mnemonics, diagrams, summary or warning statements, and tips. Tips are categorized into Exam Tip, Ward Tip, and OR tip.
