    Question for the experienced folks...

    Advertisements



    Hey DocP, Sree, Nicstx...or any other experienced seniors...what do you guys recommend (in general) to read for the surgery rotation? What helped you? And if you guys in particular were to list just the general basics of what books are needed for cores, what would u give as the main ones? I know there are plenty of lists out there, but what would you guys say helped you? I'm trying to cut down on the resources....thanks!

    I felt surgical recall was okay for the pimping done during the surgery but I also had to prepare for the oral exam given at the end of the semester.

    I borrowed a copy of First Aid Surgery and it was perfect for every single question. Not to mention it was very helpful for step 2 prep in this area.

    i did my surgical core at richmond-- surgical recall = awesome, and i took VERY detailed notes during his lectures for the final

    I used blueprints for pretty much everything else, and tried to conquer MKSAP in IM.

    Study hard during your cores, it comes back to haunt you during residency
