A Focused Curriculum is a curriculum in which students are immersed in one basic science discipline (e.g., Histology) for a concentrated period of time when Histology is covered from A to Z. A Systems-based Curriculum is a curriculum wherein students are immersed in one system (e.g., urinary system) for a concentrated period of time when all basic science disciplines of the Urinary system are covered (e.g., Embryology, Histology, Physiology, Pharmacology, and so forth).
The High-Yield Systems series addresses a problem endemic to medical schools in the United States and medical students using a Focused Curriculum. After completing a Focused Curriculum, the medical student is faced with the daunting task of integrating and collating all the basic science knowledge accrued from the Focused Curriculum into the various systems. For example, a medical student wanting to review everything about the kidney will find the information scattered in his or her embryology notes, histology notes, physiology notes, pharmacology notes, and so forth. The High-Yield Systems series eliminates this daunting task for the medical student by bringing together the embryology, gross anatomy, radiology, histology, physiology, microbiology, and pharmacology of the kidney all in one clear concise book.
The High-Yield Systems series has great utility for the following users:
1. First-year medical students in a Focused Curriculum, who want to get a head start on the inevitable process of integrating and collating all the information learned in a Focused Curriculum into systems
2. First-year medical students in a Systems-based Curriculum, who will find this series a natural textbook for such an approach
3. Medical students preparing for Step 1 of the USMLE in which the questions are becoming increasingly more systems-based than discipline-based
4. Second-year medical students for whom the curriculum is much more systems-based, as pathology covers the pathology of each system as a block (e.g., pathology of the lung, pathology of the heart, and pathology of the kidney)
5. Senior medical students who may want to quickly review all aspects of kidney function before starting a rotation in nephrology, for example
6. Recent medical graduates who may want to quickly review all aspects of kidney function before starting a residency in nephrology, for example
In the High-Yield Systems series, the student will find the same painstaking attention given to including high-yield information as found in other High-Yield books. However, the breadth of information has been expanded somewhat to cover some baseline information without which a complete understanding of the system would be difficult.
The High-Yield books based on the presentation of high-yield information that is likely to be asked on the USMLE have clearly been an asset to the medical student. After writing many High-Yield books, however, I have found that high-yield information can also be presented in a high-efficiency manner. In the High-Yield Systems series, the student now gets the benefit of both high yield and high efficiency in his or her studies.
