    Psych Shelf: Study Tips

    Advertisements



    I was wondering if anyone had any insight as to what we should be focusing our studies on for the upcoming psych shelf exam? I've heard mixed reviews, but the general consensus seems to be that high-yield topics are: Ethics, PsychoPharm, and Schizophrenia... Does that sound about right?

    Any advice is appreciated!

    Thanks!

    ethics are always big (hint - anything to do with a death always get the patient to talk), schizo is big, def mechanisms are big...dr. H, for all his eccentricity, is quite a good prof.

    but remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say "but I was told by others to do thus" or that "virtue was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice. Remember that.

    Dr. H made a packet of review notes for our class a couple of semesters ago when he did a review. If he does that this semester, definitely read through it.

    Psychosexual Development

    Anyone know how heavily tested are the eight stages of psychosexual development by Erikson on the NBME psych shelf?

    Thanks.
