This uniquely formatted text that combines introductory psychiatry content with board-style review questions has been written as a useful guide for first- and second-year medical students and other mental health professional students. Psychiatry and Behavioral Science is intended to be used as an indispensible text for pre-clinical psychiatric education. The user-friendly split page format includes clinical vignettes, “fast facts,” and relevant art work. Each chapter contains board review questions that prepare the medical student for the USMLE and COMLEX examinations. By using a clinical approach consistent with the needs of today’s medical and mental health profession students, the authors prepare these students for their exams and clinical rotations. The text is also designed to prepare international students for United States residency programs. Non-medical persons interested in learning more about the basics of psychiatry and behavioral and social factors affecting health will find this volume compelling.
