Swanson’s Family Medicine Review 8th edition continues this bestselling resource’s long tradition as the most
This is the eighth edition of Swanson’s Family Medicine Review. As an enduring and marvelous educational tool for several generations of clinicians, this text is a testimony to the founding genius of Dr. Richard Swanson, the family physician who gave birth to the Review. The text continues to be not only an effective tool for family physicians preparing for certification or recertification, but also an excellent review for clinicians simply desiring to hone their familiarity with the basic concepts pertinent to primary care.
The primary goals of the eighth edition are to update the content and retain the special essence that made previous editions such valued and popular educational instruments. The book is divided into 11 sections. Ten represent a clinical area of Family Medicine, while the eleventh section is a popular illustrated review.
Each section contains chapters covering specific subjects relevant to that section. Each chapter presents clinical cases that simulate actual clinical situations, providing the learner with a sense of reality designed to enhance retention of content. Each clinical case is followed by questions concerning diagnosis and management. The question section is followed by an answer section, which provides a detailed discussion relevant to each question.
Finally, each chapter contains a short summation of key learning points and selected readings and references, including websites. This time tested learning methodology is designed to increase retention and to expand and refine the reader’s knowledge of the diagnostic methods, therapeutics, and patient management techniques presented by each case.
