Based upon the popular review course from Harvard Medical School, The Brigham Intensive Review of Internal Medicine is a comprehensive study guide for the American Board of Internal Medicine certification or maintenance of certification examination as well as for general practice review by physicians and residents. This authoritative, thorough resource provides in-depth coverage on all specialties of internal medicine, as well as palliative care, occupational medicine, psychiatry, and geriatric medicine. Editors Ajay K. Singh and Joseph Loscalzo recruited leading authorities from Harvard as well as former chief residents at Brigham and Women's Hospital to contribute to this book. Featuring over 600 board review questions, with numerous tables and figures, chapters offer detailed discussions with emphasis on essential learning points. Over 100 chapters are organized into 10 broad sections, with one additional section dedicated to board simulation. As the required content for the American Board of Internal Medicine continues to evolve, studying can prove challenging. The Brigham Intensive Review of Internal Medicine is the ideal guide for preparing for certification or recertification.
