Download USMLE Images for the Boards PDF Free – A Comprehensive Image-Based Review [Direct Link]
Each chapter of medical education is marked by examinations—course exams, shelf exams, board exams, practical exams, licensing exams—all of which strive to recreate the patient and the disease. A large emphasis in medical education is placed on making these examinations more like real patient encounters. The majority of board examinations are compiled of traditional multiple choice questions, but more images are being used in questions to better simulate authentic clinical presentations. In teaching and preparing medical students and residents for board examinations, we have repeatedly heard complaints about limited exposure to clinical, radiographic, and electrocardiographic images. There is a paucity of board review materials that highlight images likely to be seen in increasing quantity on board examinations. Our goal for this book is to solve that problem.
The material from this book has been drawn from medical images, radiographic findings, and electrocardiograms compiled at Thomas Jefferson University. We have had an amazing group of cardiologists, radiologists, and primary care physicians aid us in collecting these images, creating challenging board-style review questions and including high-yield explanations of each disease entity outlined. Each case presented in this book is a “classic” finding likely to be seen on board examinations. The goal of the “boards” book is to provide a solid study tool to be used by students preparing for each USMLE examination and primary care board examinations.
We would like to acknowledge the editorial staff at Elsevier, especially Nicole Dicicco and Margaret Nelson, who have worked patiently with us and supported us in the creation of this book. We sincerely hope that these carefully selected images and cases provide the reader with a stimulating and challenging review.
