Psychiatry Morning Report: Beyond the Pearls is a case-based reference that covers the key material included on the USMLE Step 2 and Step 3, as well as the psychiatry clerkship. Focusing on the practical information you need to know, it teaches how to analyze a clinical vignette in the style of a morning report conference, sharpening your clinical decision-making skills and helping you formulate an evidence-based approach to realistic patient scenarios.

Book Reviews

"This book is intended for medical students preparing for the psychiatry shelf exam and USMLE board exam. It may also serve as a refresher on basic psychiatry concepts for non-psychiatric providers, but the level of depth is likely too low for practicing psychiatrists to find useful. The book meets the needs of the intended audience as the degree of complexity is sufficient to prepare a medical student for an exam."
